Teach your students how delicious it is when science comes to Thanksgiving dinner. Using unit conversions, students will calculate the lowest- and highest-calorie meal possible for 12 people. Students are given set quantities of specific foods – as well as the calories per serving size of those foods – and must calculate how many calories per person these foods provide.

This resource includes:

• Student worksheet (3 pages)

• Answer key (8 pages)

• Teacher instructions (1 page)

This fun, Thanksgiving-themed activity is a great assignment to give before Thanksgiving break. It will help your students exercise their mind while they practice the crucial skill of unit conversions. Plus, it just might lead your students to make healthier choices on Thanksgiving Day.

This activity can definitely fill a 45-minute class period.

You can feel good about listing this activity in your pre-Thanksgiving break lesson plans.

I wish you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving!
