Weight and Mass - Planetary Weight

(1)
Useful when teaching the difference between weight and mass. Pupils should illicit the idea that if they were to visit another planet, their mass would stay the same but their weight would change as a result of gravity. Older or more able groups I ask to research the gravitational field strength. Younger or less able groups I send of a tour of the solar system. Put out the planets and ask them to find the gravity. Unit for gravity is given as m/s/s, you may wish to change in to N/kg depending on group and syllabus.

Balanced Diet - Food tests on McDonald's

(1)
After teaching a lesson on the 7 food groups, students use food tests to conclude whether or not McDonald's provides a balanced diet. I buy a big Mac to test. Then watch a short clip on the Supersize documentary and analyse the symptoms of a high fat/high sugar diet; physical and mental. There is also opportunity to evaluate the food tests as methods of identifying nutritional content. I would recommend setting up the food tests as a circus of activities. I have two circuses on the go, so 8 stations. However, this would depend on your lab layout and your class.
