Students develop understanding of material most completely when they are able to relate content to their own lives. Calorimetry is the study of the burning of food samples to measure the amount of energy stored within a food sample. This relates directly to the body's ability to break down the food and extract energy from chemical bonds. Students will relate the foods they eat today to a series of foods consumed by people of different classes in Medieval Times. Students will use this knowledge to participate in a game where their ability to answer questions depends on the amount of food they consume and allow their body to convert to physical energy.
