Description:

Through this nutrition activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners will understand—and probably be surprised by—how big serving sizes of various foods should be. This is accomplished in a very interesting way: learners will practice estimating by comparing various foods to everyday objects, like a hockey puck and a computer mouse. This activity was created as a pre-visit for a traveling science show, but makes a great stand-alone activity as well! It is an excellent visual representation for learners to remember.
