6th Grade Health Project- Due on day of the unit test!

6th Grade Health Project
You are going to construct a Public Service Announcement explaining the dangers of one illegal drug that we discussed in class.
A Public Service Announcement is any type of poster/billboard/commercial that tries to teach the people of the community about an important issue.
In your PSA, be sure to discuss important details of the drug including…
-How it is taken
- What does it do to the body?
-Where are people typically using this drug?
- What population is the PSA targeting?
Use your creativity and various artistic skills to succeed in this project- you can always ask for help with ideas.
Look for a rubric on the blog

This will be due on the day of your unit test.

Short Answer
1)      The calorie equation states ……….. Calories in- Calories out=
What can a person do to get the answer to the equation closer to zero and to avoid storing too many calories?  There are two appropriate answers and I am looking for both.

2)      An average person should eat around 2,000 calories per day.  Should you be eating exactly 2,000 or more or less?  Think about your daily habits and answer this question about your own body.

Nutrition Assignment

5th Grade students,
   Here is the Nutrition Project that will be due on the day of your Nutrition Test.  I will tell you that exact date during your next class.

Last class we did an activity where we selected a meal from an online menu and saw how many calories it contained.  You are going to find the nutrional information of your own meal.  
1) Go to a restaurant website or go get a nutritional sheet for an actual restuarant (for example-   -- but try to be original).
2) Pick your meal from that restaurant (remember to include a drink or two and a side like fries if that is what you eat).
3) How many combined calories does your meal contain (add the up the total)?  
4) How many grams of fat does your meal contain?
5) How does your calorie total compare to the 2,000 calories an average person should eat per day?
6)  Think about your own body and what you do each day.  Should you be eating more or less than 2,000 calories?  Explain your answer.

We will go over this activity in detail in class.

Ask me any questions you might have while doing this project,
Mr. Goldstein
