Digestive System Experiment

Year Four have been learning about the different organs and stages of the digestive process. We looked at comparing the digestive system between two different animals, followed by a comparison to our own digestive system.  We learnt about the function of each part of the digestive system, before carrying out a practical experiment which recreated the digestion process in the classroom. Using household items such as plastic cups, orange juice and a pair of tights, the experiment enabled the children to visualise the process of digestion in an engaging, practical way. Plus they got to make poo!
