Today, Y4C began to explore the digestive system. Using a variety of equipment, we recreated the digestive system to explore and discover what actually takes place when we digest our food. We used the following equipment and ingredients to recreate the digestive system:
– One freezer bag (the stomach)
– A pop sock (the small intestine)
– Cream crackers and bananas (the food)
– Water (saliva)
– Orange juice (stomach acid)
We had lots of fun investigating how the digestive system works!
