Step 3: Show the power point presentation and be prepared to discuss the answers to the 'mini' quizzes throughout the presentation.
Possible second day activity: If time permits to have a second day on this topic, the students could do a cooking lab in which they make miniature pizzas and analyze how the ingredients can fit into the food pyramid categories and what they could do to make it have less fat and more nutrition. (Such as substituting Canadian Bacon for the Pepperoni, use low fat, part skim mozzarella cheese, add more veggies such as peppers, onions, add fruit (pineapple) use whole wheat English muffins etc )
