Healthy vs. Unhealthy Food

Two teachers were covering the topic of Healthy and unhealthy food with their classes. Instead of relying on the package prepared by their school, they led off the topic by showing students a video clip on junk food and healthy food.

The trigger video showcased an animation of 'Junk Food Bandits' playing a basketball match against the 'Pyramid Powers', in a face-off between healthy and unhealthy food.

The first teacher, Huixuan, posed an open inquiry question to her students after they had watched the video, “What are some of your takeaways from the video?”. She then guided them to post their ideas and questions on KF (Fig. 2).

The second teacher, Shoba, posed four questions to students prior to showing them the video, in order to guide their thinking while watching it: "What do you think is the purpose of showing you this video?"; "What do you think about the video?"; "What stands out to you in the video?"; and "What interests you?" After watching the video, she directed students to post their thoughts and ideas on KF (Fig. 3).
