Birch get Messy in Science

In today's science lesson, Birch Class discovered the journey that food makes once we eat it!


We mashed our food up with our teeth (the masher), then it was transported to the stomach (ziplock bag) when the enzymes (orange juice) helped break down our food molecules. From there, the good nutrients of the food was passed through the walls of the small and the large intestines (a pair of tights), then the waste was passed through the anus (polystyrene cup).

Have a look at the photos below - can you tell who is doing which function? Apologies for any dirty clothes - it did become pretty messy once we reached the small intestines!
