"Are You What You Eat?" is an internet based project which encompasses Math, Science, and Language Arts. Through this project each child will be involved in keeping a daily record of their food choices and correlate these choices to their taste bud preferences. Students will apply various math skills to draw a parallel to the recent findings of "Super Tasters."
This internet-based project will allow your students to share information about their daily food intake. The project has been developed for elementary level students. The project will span a range of subject areas including: science, math, language arts, social studies and health. The project is flexible in regards to how it can be implemented.
