1.How do we find the energy (calories) per serving?
2.How do we find the matter (carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals)?
3.Where can we locate the list of ingredients?
4.Where can we locate the list of ingredients?
5.How do we find the percentage of different types of matter in the food?
1.We can find the calories per serving by looking at the label and seeing it at the top. If you don't have the label you can burn them and the amount of heat they let out is the amount of calories.
2.You can find out the amount of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals by looking in the middle of the label
3. You can find the ingredient list at the very bottom of the nutrition fact list and it is usually in a different font.
4. We can locate the list of ingredients on the pet food list at the very top of the nutrition facts label.
5. You can find all of the percentages for the foods in the middle or towards the bottom of the nutrition facts.
1. We can locate the list of ingredients on the pet food list at the very top of the nutrition facts label.
2. You can find all of the percentages for the foods in the middle or towards the bottom of the nutrition facts.
- As a result of looking at food labels, what did you learn about food?
- Look at the ingredients of one human food label. Write down the food name. What ingredients came from animals?
- What ingredients in the above food label came from plants?
- What similarities and differences did you notice between the human food and pet food labels you looked at?
- Choose an animal/insect from the ecosystem walk. What do you think it eats? Explain what you think it gets from its food.
- . What I learned about the foods when I looked at the label were all kinds of nutrition facts. It showed me in the tomato soup label all of the things that a human would wonder about when they are eating a food. It showed me how much fat, calories, serving size, sugars, protein and much more. It also showed me about the amount of nutrition it is giving me and how much it is giving me for the suggested amount of that ingredient per day. In the dog food label it showed me all of the ingredients and all of the percents of the amount of food it has in it that a dog should be eating each day.
- . I looked at a chicken noodle soup label and I found a couple of different things that came from animals. All of the ingredients came from chicken but there were a few ingredients that came from a chicken. First there was just chicken meat, then there was chicken broth, there was also eggs, egg whites, and dried eggs. Those things all come from animals because it is either from the chicken meat of when the chicken lays the egg.
- . Some of the ingredients that come from plants in the human food label above are Tomato puree which comes from tomatoes which are plants, sugar which you have to grow sugar canes or sugar beets to make, and spices which you grow.
- . Some of the differences I noticed between the pet food label and the human food label are the human food label has a lot less ingredients in it. Another thing that I noticed was different between the human label and the pet label was the human label has for facts about how healthy it is and how much fat and calories it has while the pet label just had the percentages of how much of that food the pet should be eating.
- . An animal that I saw from the ecosystem walk was a bird. I think that the bird eats worms or other smaller insects because when I was watching the birds I saw them pecking at the ground which would be where worms are or seeds are so seeds could be another possible food choice for the bird. I thing that it probably get energy and matter from it's food because that is what food gives you. I probably also give the bird a lot of protein because animals have protein in them and if worms and bugs are there main food source they would get a lot of protein.
Answer the following questions in your blog post. Remember to have at least one follow-up sentence for each question, when possible.
- What does food provide to animals, including humans?
- Do the pet food and human food have the same nutrients? In what ways are they different?
- Does a higher calorie count mean a food is better for pets to eat? What makes pet owners think that?
- What is it in food that helps us repair our bodies and grow?
- What in food helps us move and stay warm?
- In what way does energy transfer when animals eat food?
- Look at the nutrition label below for milk. How much energy is in the food?
- What matter is in the food?
- . Food provides matter and energy to humans and animals and that keeps them alive. Energy provides you with the ability to do work and stay warm, while matter makes you grow and repairs muscle tears in you to make you stronger.
- . The human food and the pet food do not have the same amount of nutrients. For the pet the pet food has a lot of nutrients but for the human it does not. The soup has a lot of nutrients for the human but not a lot for the pet.
- . Higher calorie count count could mean it is better if the animal if the animal needs more calories, but if they are already eating enough calories then they will get fatter and it will be unhealthy. Pet owners might think that more calories is more healthy because they might think the more calories the better but that is not always the case.
- . Matter is what is in food that helps you grow. Matter helps you repair your muscles when you get tares in it or when you are growing you need matter.
- . Energy, energy keeps you warm and it also helps us move so without energy we would be cold and would get tired when we moved or exercise quicker.
- . It all starts with the sun. That makes the plants grow, then the animals eat the plants and get the energy and matter that the plant had. FInally the bigger animals eat the smaller animals and all the energy is transferred. Then when the big animal dies it is decomposed and all of the matter goes into the soil and then the plant grows in the soil and the cycles over again.
