      Great product. It was easy to implement and students were engaged.

      I used the Google Slides version of the activity over a couple of lessons. Very easy to use, and the students enjoyed learning more about nutrition and the realities of some of their favorite foods! Turns out high school students don't tend to eat all that well...

      Great resource to use with my self-contained classroom and my nutrition unit.

      This is a great resource to leave with a sub. I had to be gone and needed an assignment that reviewed what we were studying.
