Energetic George used to be full of energy but now he feels weak and tired. He cannot stay focused at school and does not feel like playing with his friends. Energetic George needs help solving the mystery of how he lost his energy. This is clearly a case for a group of brilliant detectives to solve.
Students gear up with a detective hat and badge, magnifying glass and clue pad and venture into supermarket aisles in search of clues to solve the mystery of why Energetic George lost his energy.
After exploring the five main food groups, reading nutrition labels and sampling new foods to uncover clues, students are equipped to solve the Case of the Missing Energy.
