In this lesson, students will be assigned a topic to research for their final project and will work in small groups to design a tool-checklist that they will use for the remainder of Unit 5 (and perhaps outside of class!) to evaluate nutritional claims and dietary recommendations. This checklist will be a guide that prompts them to consider the key factors of nutrition and metabolism and their relationship to metabolic diseases discussed in Units 1-4. This lesson also outlines the final project, which is the focus of the remainder of the Metabolic Disease module.
