Students in Mrs. Major’s Senior Project classes have been discussing how many adults struggle to feed themselves properly out in the real world.
Classes learned about crazy diets adults will try, which often lead to weigh gain once they stop dieting and eat from all the food groups again. Students have learned that calories are a unit of energy, and they determined how many calories their individual bodies need each day to maintain their current weight.
One of Mrs. Major’s most popular classroom projects is to pass around empty snack boxes as a tool to learn how to read nutrition labels.
Most people quickly realized that snack foods and sweet drinks have far more calories per serving than they realized before they read numbers on the nutrition label.
1st block not only read snack box labels, but they were treated with two jello pies baked and brought to school just for this class by Jenaiyah Woodyard.
Everyone was appreciative of Jenaiyah’s thoughtfulness, and as it turns out, there are no calories in pie when you eat it on a high school campus.
Just kidding, but who’s counting?!
