What's In Your Lunch Bag?

After learning about metric conversions through the story of King Henry, the students in Miss Emmons class dug into their lunchboxes!  

They started by learning about the nutritional value of the substances found in foods. Next,  the students looked at the make up of the foods in their lunch boxes. After discussing the nutritional value of the foods,  they considered the amount of each substance. By creating a chart,  they converted their labels to every measurement in the metric system!
