`An Introduction to Data Reading and ComputationsChristeen Brown                Robert Fulton Elementary                               5300 S. Hermitage St                               Chicago IL 60609                               (312) 535-9000Objectives:This lesson is designed for grade levels 3-5Upon completion of the lesson, the students should be able to:L Identify data on the horizontal (x) axis and vertical (y) axisL Read numbered pounds on a weight scaleL Estimate pounds upon sight before given known weightL Identify actual weightL Understand the importance of controlling body weightL Observe fat, calorie, sugar and sodium intake of certain foods compared with   the daily recommended allowancesL Discover and apply rules of computations for determining how much weight to   gain, lose or retainL Design their own data chart   Materials Needed:L Nutritional Facts brochures of several fast food restaurantsL Bathroom scaleL Calculator (optional)L PaperL Writing toolsRecommended Strategy:L Have students guess the weight of their classmatesL Have students weigh themselves on the scaleL Create a data chart (guessed weight compared to actual weight)L Choose a routine menu from three of the different fast food restaurant   brochuresL Locate the items on the data chart and list the calorie, sugar, fat and sodium   intake of each of the chosen items L Compare the compiled data of a regular menu to the daily recommended   allowancesL Decide whether their is a need to lose, gain or maintain weight according to   findings after computing totals of dataPerformance Assessment:Demonstrate a usage of how to control weight using basic computation of data chart readings.  Incorporate this activity into becoming healthy the mathematical way.     This project is best used in teaching Fitness the mathematical way.`
