    This activity is designed to encourage students to think about foods and group them according to their own categorisation system. Students then do online research regarding food energy and healthy food recommendations and revise their grouping systems in light of the new knowledge.

    In this activity, students explore ways of grouping foods using a silent card shuffle.

    By the end of this activity, students should be able to:

    • experience devising and revising their own food categorisation systems
    • consider the relationship between food and energy.
