This learning object is a lesson plan that can be used to instruct students on using their current weight and height measurements to find out how many calories they need to maintain their weight. The activity is present within the URL: a calculator that uses height and weight measurements to find a recommended daily caloric intake number. This website offers a large variety of other charts and tables such as fast food facts and calorie values.
This site was very easy to follow. I actually used it myself to find my daily caloric intake and have bookmarked it for future use. This site will be used in my classroom as interactive material. Another nice feature of this site is the online diet tracker - it is actually a link to a diet service that one can join for a minimal fee. It seemed so good that I am actually going to join. The site has a massive list of popular foods as well as fast foods and nutritional value.
I liked the way the initial page was set up. Instead of linking to each site from the 'popular features', there is a caption containing the contents of the link. From there, you would actually link to a further site. There is not an abundance of information on each page which is nice. It is very condensed. There is no guessing about what is a link and what is not. All links are blue and other text is black. Instead of adding a lot of text to the page, the site utilzes well thought out tabs and pull downs. There is even a link for a nutrition glossary to help with vocabulary needs.
