This went over pretty well man, thanks. I took off the last part of the worksheet that had kids inventing their own strange food though, my boys will just end up hitting each other and doing nothing if I did that. Definitely changed the baby eating cake picture as well, even my co-teacher thought it was dookie. I just added some more guessing the calories for things like corn dogs, tuna kimbap and spicy ramyun at the end. They dug that.

fun. 
also, the simpsons' 'ingredients of a hot dog' clip might be relevant:

i'd have to take out the anorexia girl in her underwear.  there's no way i could effectively explain what anorexia means while they're losing their minds over the half-naked chick on screen.

I had the same worry as well, but none of my kids (600) had that reaction. It might have been because I set a serious tone before showing the picture though. Also, I couldn't find an alternative picture that effectively relayed the message.\

I think I recall an episode of simpsons where they grind an entire cow into ground beef...but I may be mistaken.

Thanks for the feedback!

Haha. I didn't realize that some of my kids thought the picture was sh!t until one of them brought it up half way through the week. I made it a point to tell them it was chocolate cake for the rest of the week. I got a good chuckle out of that. Haha.

The last activity was only for the advanced students. I never got to it for my lower level students. Can you post your version of the ppt for others?

Sure man. I put in another slide with a list of the fasttest countries in the world, then the extra slides. I also put in a link for a korean robocop fried chicken commercial from the 80's because I thought it was hilarious with the fake English dialogue on it. Not sure if I'll show it to my kids though . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pOoSe2K5DU

Whoops just realized a big mistake on slide ten. Should have put percentage of people instead of body fat, it's fixed here.

You always make an awesome material.
I was looking for a theme of food for high school students.
It's really good idea to make students think their own strange food.
Thanks for you idea!

This lesson works well with my 3rd graders.  Really piques their interest. Is a bit heavy on the teacher talk time, but can also work to stimulate interesting input from students.  I simplified the worksheet into a half-sheet format.  Took out some of the blanks.  Still helps keep students engaged and on-task.  This format requires printing on both sides and cutting the sheets in half.  I asked my co-teacher to help figure out the right printer settings.  I find it helps cut down on paper waste/printing time.  Hope someone finds this useful. Thanks Leo!

After the Strange Food lesson, I showed this video from Man Vs Wild. He eats a live Giant Grub that explodes as he chews it. Got a HUGE reaction from the kids.  After showing the video, I asked them if they think it's delicious, ok, or disgusting. They would all scream disgusting! maybe 1 or 2 clowns would say delicious.
Try it! ;)

Magnificent suggestions kitster1! I've decided to embed that video into the original powerpoint at the end. Re-uploading now~

I taught this lesson to my middle school girls yesterday and they were absolutely FASCINATED! Lots of good content and a springboard for good discussion. I especially like the worksheet you created as it kept them occupied the entire time.

I will definitely miss all your lessons and good luck in the next stage of your life!  8)

Leo, great lesson. Can you post your version of Epic Meal Time separately? For some reason, the embedded in the ppt doesn't work for me.

Here is my alteration, including a link for the video. I added a Jeopardy game. Hope you like it!
