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 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?
I learned that some foods that look healthy can sometimes be less healthy than you think. I also learned that some food labels can tell you the amount that you you are suppose to eat in one serving, but if you wanted to find out how much for example, calcium was in one cup of soup than you would multiply one cup times 5 divided by 5 = how much calcium their is in one cup of soup.
Red pepper and tomato soup: Reduced fat milk, butter, cream, and non-fat dry milk all come from an animal.
tomato puree, corn syrup, soybean oil, carrot fiber, and spices all come from plants.
The human food labels were much more unhealthy than the pet food label because maybe dogs or whatever pet that that pet was, didn't need treats in their diet.
Food provides many things including energy, nutrients, fat etc.
No, the pet food mostly consists of meat, poultry, and vitamins. The human food on the other hand mostly consists of vegetables, sugar, and fat.
No, a higher calorie count doesn't mean that it is better for dogs to eat, but some pet owners might disagree.
Protein is the thing that help our bodies repair and grow.
Where do you think the items came from originally?
Do you think the items look the same today as they did a month ago?
What happened to the matter in each item over the past month?
Do you think the items will be the same forever? Why or why not?
What do all of the items in the bag have in common?
Do you notice any relationships between the items in the bags? They all...
What evidence do you have that the items were all once part of a living thing?
Another name for "nature's waste" is "organic remains." These are all organisms that are no longer living, or parts of organisms that are discarded, excreted, or no longer needed. What other examples of organic remains can you think of?
What would happen to each item from your bag if it were left outside? What might it look like in 6 months? What would cause it to change?
What would eventually happen to the waste MATTER in each type of organic remain?
Why isn't the earth just piled up with all the matter from nature's waste?
Why could all of the items in the mystery bags be classified as nature's waste?
Do you think that all living things generate waste? What makes you think that?
I think that the items came from the ground, trees, and plants origionaly, because they re all almost dead.
No, because some of the items might've been old or on a tree preveiously and that now they are dead.
The matter dehidrated, got brown, started rotting, and most of all it started dying, and fell off a tree/plant.
NOOOOOOO, of course not they are going to get disolved into anything nthat they get into in their whole entire life!
These items all have many things in common, one being that if they are all natural than that means that they all came from a plant or tree.
They all have brown stuff on them any place of it.
I have some evedence that all of these things are living because they are plants and bugs.
Another example is a bone.
they would become browned.
It will desolve into soil or matter/ organic waste.
Because if it was then it would'nt be the earth that we know and love, it would be filled with poo and leaves/plants.
Because they all came from natural things/plants and are now waste products.
Yes because we poo plants drop parts of themselves and bugs poo as well! The reason that I think this is because if no one went poo or released any sort of a waste product then I just don't know how anyone would survive or for that matter, even eat in the first place!
