Science – The Digestive System

In science we are learning all about the digestive system. To start our topic, we made our own digestive system using orange juice (stomach acid), water (saliva), crackers and banana (food), a food bag (the stomach) and tights (the intestines).

It started in the mouth where the food was crushed for digestion which was when we added the water as the saliva. As the food moved into the stomach, this is when we added the orange juice to help break the food down. We then used the tights to move the food through the intestines and squeezed out any liquids which left only the waste products.
