Burning Calories by Exercising
Calories are units of energy. You can use this chart to see how much energy is used through
different exercise activities

Use this list to determine how many calories you burned each day.
Step one:
Using the EXERCISE CHART, determine how many calories your activity burns per hour and
divide that number by 60 since there are 60 minutes in one hour.
Example: Sally walked for her exercise
Walking burns 160 calories per hour = 2.67 calories per minute
160 ÷ 60 = 2.67 calories per minute
Step two:
Multiply that number by the number of minutes you exercised:
Example: Sally walked for 15 minutes.
2.67 x 15 = 40.05 calories
Step three:
Kumara have about 120 calories each. At the end of the month when your chart is complete,
add up how many calories you burned and divide that number by 120 to determine how many
kumara you burned off!
Example: Patrick burned a total of 1150 calories this past month.
1150 ÷ 120 = 9.58 kumara burned
Patrick burned almost 10 kumara in one month!
To encourage your students in a healthy lifestyle, use this exercise contest to see who can burn
the most kumara in a month. Give small health-conscience prizes to the winners.
