Introduction

 When students assume their allocated professional role as a nutritionist, exercise
physiologist or personal trainer. With these roles, the students will develop a program as a
group for the overweight client from original story on WebQuest.

Lesson Steps
 Students use the information they have developed throughout the work in the previous three
classes to assume professional roles and complete an exercise and nutrition plan using
easle.ly (online ICT tool).
 Each student develops their opinion of program depending on what they have learnt and

their professional role.
 Students complete a word document with a short explanation behind decisions made by the
students in their professional role to be handed in to the teacher at the end of the lesson. 
