To give our first lesson about calorie and calorie intake a bit more body we followed it with a second lesson to create a deeper understanding on what is in the food that we consume. During this lesson students participated in a sugar cube run; a shuttle run game where students had to place sugar cubes in front of 6 different food items. After all the groups had completed the task we discussed the various outcomes and the direct outcome and the shock on their faces was worth a lot!
The second game was based around their understanding of amounts of calories in food. Students had again a shuttle run test but were now asked to place cards with the correct calorie amount by various food items. Every time a mistake was made students received an extra kilogram in the weightvest they were wearing. At the end some were staggering down the gym but it did leave a big impression!
