Year 4 and the digestive system

23 November 2016


As part of their science topic, Animals (including humans), Year 4 recreated the digestive system. They were able to name the organs and explain what each one did as they aided food through a system of their own. A bowl represented the mouth and a fork some teeth, a plastic bag the oesophagus and another the stomach. The process got a bit disgusting as the food made its way through the small intestine (some tights) and the nutrients were absorbed into the blood stream.
