Disgusting digestion

Yesterday, Italy class modelled the digestive system using everyday equipment to represent the parts of the body. They had to:

  1. Tear the food (into the bowl) with your hands to represent the incisors.
  2. Mash the food with the cutlery/utensils to represent the molars - add a small bit of water for the saliva.
  3. Add your drink and chew some more.
  4. Transfer the food to the plastic bag, which is our stomach, and add the vinegar.
  5. Now it’s time to churn your stomach contents.
  6. Now the intestines - pour the food into the tights and squeeze out all the nutrients.
  7. Cut a hole in the bottom and release the poo!
