    • Things I would like to change next time:
    • Each pair would choose different food to avoid any repetitions.
    • Complete the poster as well and hang them up in classroom.
    • Investigate on local food availability and compare the prices.
  • 12.
    • Limitation:
    • Many students can’t tell their parents what foods are indirectly related to their ultimate well being.
    • So hopefully they can actually make choice when they are in charge .
