In this WebQuest, students focus on nutrition - including undernutrition and overweight and obesity - as critical issues in the field of global health.
Students consider the causes and effects of key nutritional problems and analyze their global impacts. They will also consider solutions to nutrition issues facing both the U.S. and the world at large.
Finally, students will select a nutritional issue currently in the news. After finding several news articles addressing the issue, students will compose a letter to the editor that integrates information they have collected and articulates their opinion on how the problem should be addressed.
