Digestive system

We’ve been studying the digestive system in 6th level. In order to understand the process of digestion we made a little experiment to show how the food travels through our body.We cut crackers and a banana which represented our food.

 We mixed it with saliva and crushed it into the mouth.

We passed the food through the esophagus.

We mixed it with gastric juices in the stomach.

From the stomach it passed to the small intestine where it mixed with bile and pancreatic juice.

All the nutrients from our food were absorbed by the blood vessels.

Then, the undigested food went to the large intestine.

There, the colon movements moved our waste and they became feaces which were expelled through the rectum and the anus.
