Year 4: Digestive System demonstration

Year 4 demonstrated how the digestive system breaks down and uses the food we eat.

They used a pair of tights, a sandwich bag, a banana and some biscuits. Adding a dash of stomach acid (that’s orange squash), they were able to show how the food travels through the oesophagus, into the stomach and beyond.  They had a great time simulating the process of digestion and made quite a lot of mess !
