Experimenting with Digestion

5th Oct 2020

Primary 6 have been learning all about the digestive system as part of their WAU topic ‘Food and Fairtrade’. Today they got to take part in an experiment which showed them how food moves through the body, starting in the mouth, travelling through the oesophagus, into the stomach, the small intestine and then the large intestine, before leaving the body. It was a little bit disgusting but good fun. 
They also got to see how long the different parts of the digestive system are - and found it hard to believe that it all fits into our bodies.
