Year 4 become a digestive system!

For children to gain a good understanding of how the digestive system works, we created it practically.

Some children played the mouth, and ripped up the bread, representing how the teeth, in our mouth, break up our food. Another group of children then squeezed the pieces of bread down a tube, this represented the oesophagus and how it squeezes the food down into our stomachs. Then some children played the stomach and tipped coke on the bread, to represent the acid that breaks up food up in our stomach.

The children had a lot of fun and learnt a lot about the digestive system!
