• What’s easier to find where you live: fresh fruit and vegetables or fast food and chips/ soda? Why is that? Has it always been this way?

• What, if any, are the biggest obstacles to getting healthy food in your community (e.g. cost, distance, time, etc.)?

• Think about the last three meals you ate. How is this food different from what your grandparents might have eaten 50 years ago?

• What are some of the most serious health problems in your community (prompt by listing a few potential examples)? Raise your hand if you have one, two, three, or more family members or close friends with diabetes (or who are very overweight, although the latter may be a bit too personal).

• What are some effective ways to address diet-related problems in your community?
• When people are unhealthy because of the food they eat and a lack of physical activity,

who is responsible?

Survey Says?

With a partner, create a Google Form survey related to the major topics in this Healthy Eating Unit. You will need to get at least 30 students at Lorne Park to complete your survey.

Analyze the data from the survey and summarize the findings into a presentation called: STUDENT HEALTHY EATING using Google Slides.

Use the inquiry protocol: SO WHAT? Continue to ask So What? in response to your survey findings. For example: 90% of students in grade 10 report eating fast food daily. So What? Determine a specific answer. For example: Grade 10 students are not making daily healthy food choice. So What? Continue in this manner until you have a concrete and specific series of conclusions. These conclusions form the basis of your presentation slides.
