The Digestive System

We explored the digestive system by recreating the main features of the digestive system in the classroom - this was very messy and lots of fun.

We mushed up bread and orange juice in a plastic bag (the stomach and stomach acid) and we then squeezed this through a pair of tights (intestines) to extract the nutrients and water. We emptied the tights (you know what part that represents!), this was very messy.
