Calories Out vs. Food Cost

This lesson plan from ATEEC will help students make comparative judgements from data, interpret data generated, and identify, assimilate and integrate information from diverse sources. It would be appropriate for an introductory science course. The activity sheet includes a description of the lesson, in which students will survey foods at a supermarket to determine which give the most energy for the least amount of money. This resource is free to download from ATEEC; users must create a free login to access.
