We kicked off Unit 2 with the following entry task:

In your notebook, make three columns with the following titles:

Carbohydrate       Lipid       Protein

List as many foods as you can in the appropriate columns.

Next, students were shown an image of a traditional Thanksgiving meal and we discussed the components of the meal, placing each food item in the appropriate food category.  Students then used this thinking as they took the Unit 2 Pre-Assessment which called on them to label the parts of a cheeseburger and place those food parts into the food categories from the entry task.  The remainder of the Pre-Assessment asked students to explain the processes of digestion, absorption, and biosynthesis.

Students who completed the Pre-Assessment early were able to spend the remainder of the class period finalizing their Egg Lab reports (due tomorrow by midnight).
