This activity comes from Kayla Duncan. Students first explore by viewing a video entitled "What Does 2000 Calories Look Like?". The video shows them various foods and how much of each you can eat to total 2000 calories. From there students do further analysis including writing equations. This is a great way to engage kids in thinking about what they are eating, use their math skills and to really start to consider caloric content!
