Objective

Students will work with equivalence to find meals and activities that equal the calories in one popular meal from a restaurant.

Steps

  1. First, students will pick a restaurant and then find how many calories are recommended per day.
  2. Then they'll create a common meal from that restaurant and calculate the calories in that meal compared to the recommended calories per day.
  3. Now they'll create several interesting equivalences, showing how the calories in their meal equal the calories in other meals or the calories spent on activities.
  4. They use their information to design a parody ad.
  5. Bonus: They are now hired by the restaurant to create an ad for a low-calorie meal.
