Our Digestive System: November 16th

We are learning about the body and today Ms Paterson demonstrated how the digestive system works using crackers, a banana, acid (coca cola), some tights and a few pieces of kitchen equipment. It was very interesting and rather graphic - we are all now very clear about what happens when you eat and how the food travels through your body!

Once we had seen the demonstration everyone ate a cracker and estimated how long it would take the food to get to the stomach.

Not long!...

We then learned in greater detail about how the food travels through the body before it leaves as waste.

A very informative afternoon!
