Dear Students,

I write to you on behalf of the World Dietary Council. We need your help. Our council would like to distribute information to middle school students about why and how we eat what we eat. Unfortunately, all of the products we have designed to this point have been "boring" and "lame" according to several students in our test groups. It occurred to us maybe someone in the age group we are targeting would be better able to create an informational product for us. Naturally, we thought of you.

Based on our test groups suggestions, the ideal product is a pop-up book. Though this may be difficult to mass produce, do not worry about that. If you create the ideal book, we will take care of the mass production. Because the intended audience is middle school students world wide, you will want to consider the variety of cultures in our world and how that might impact diets.

When developing your informational tool, please consider the following questions. If you were a polar bear, how would your diet be different? Why? What if you were a scorpion? A mountain lion? A lion in Africa? What if you lived in China? Africa? France? What factors contribute to what and how you eat? To answer these questions, you will need to include information about the roles of biomes, food webs, culture, food pyramids, and digestive systems in your product.

We are excited to be partnering with your teacher in the development of this product. Your teacher will provide the criteria upon which you will be scored later. If you have any questions, please ask. We look forward to seeing your masterpieces.

Sincerely,

Etta Goodstuff

World Dietary Council
