Metabolic Disease

The Metabolic Disease Module is organized around five key questions. These questions guide our investigation of how our bodies use food, and what this means for our health. The students will explore each of these questions and then, for a final project, use what they have learned to describe how the different choices we make about what to eat can affect our bodies.

Unit 1: What’s in your food?

Unit 2: How does your body use food?

Unit 3: What is metabolic disease?

Unit 4: How do I identify ‘good’ and ‘bad’ food?

Unit 5: How does this knowledge apply to me?

Final Project: Evaluate a nutrition claim using scientific reasoning
