Students research fast food options and decide which option would be the healthiest.

Introduction

You and your friends are planning a fun shopping day at the Mall of America over summer break. The four of you are all members of either the soccer or softball teams at your school, and the coaches have asked you to eat healthy over the summer break. There are so many options at the food court, but you know eating out is rarely considered healthy.

                            

This WebQuest is designed to help you compare similar items among the top fast food restaurants and to determine if the "healthy" options offered on the menu are truly healthy for you.
