As we work through the digestive system and nutrition, students will be challenged to convince someone to make a lifestyle change to improve his or her health by developing an infographic. Topics can range from artificial sweeteners to growth hormones in food to fast food in the United States.  Using the website Piktochart, students will develop an infographic of their research. I also found this blog that has a ton of other infographic creating websites they can choose from.   Requirements will include the use of Google Scholar and we will discuss the need for reputable sources for all information used.  After students have completed this assignment, I think we will take it one step further by designing a lab to test what they claim.
