Discussing Digestion

Year 4 have been learning about the digestive system and how our bodies digest food.

We put bread in a plastic wallet. This was our stomach. We added cola.  This was the acid in our stomach.  Then, we squished it all up. After that, we put the squished bread inside tights. The tights were our intestines.

Finally, we put the filled tights tied up on the side in a bowl, so we don’t have a sticky mess everywhere! Now we have to wait a couple of days to find out what happens to the food we eat.
