I do this lesson with my year 8’s, as we have been working on nutrients. It will require a computer room and involves researching the calorie content of a range of Christmas lunch foods, and calculating the total amount of calories in their Christmas lunch. There is a crossword starter and an extension task, to work out how long it will take to burn these calories off. Should fill a one hour lesson nicely.
