Disgusting Digestion!

Today we have been exploring the 'ins and outs' of the digestive system, and it was exactly as revolting as it sounds! We 'ate' crackers and bananas, using water and orange juice to represent saliva and stomach acid, then squashed them together in a zip-lock bag stomach... After that, we poured the mixture into the leg of a pair of tights to represent the small intestine where nutrients can be removed and enter the blood stream. Then the rest of the undigested food made its way into the large intestine where it was compacted and eventually 'passed' out of the body. It was memorable, to say the least!
