Investigating the Digestive System

In Year 4, we have been learning about the digestive system.  We created our own digestive system. We began with a 'meal' of bread and biscuits, which we cut up in our mouth ( a plastic food bag).  We then moved the food down the oesophagus into our 'stomach'.  For this we used a zip lock bag - we used cola to act as stomach acid.  


Once the food had spent some time in the stomach, we passed it through the small and large intestines - we used a pair of tights to act as these parts of the body.  We had  a great time and learnt lots!
