Digestive System Experiment

We have been learning about the digestive system in our context work.

We did an experiment and we used 2 slices of bread, coke and some yogurt. We ripped the 2 slices of bread into small pieces. Then we put the small pieces into a plastic tube that acted as the oesophagus. Next we added the coke and put the yogurt in the tube. At the bottom of the tube there was a bag that acted as the stomach and Mr Edwards squished the food around because when you run around your stomach mixes all the food around. Four hours later you need to poo.  Megan unclipped the bag and she squished the food down another tube.  We had fun learning about the digestive system!

Last week we learned about the digestive system. We learned about what happens to our food once it goes inside us.                                                                                                                                                   We did an experiment and we used 2 slices of bread, also we used coke, and some yogurt. Then Kirsty used her fingers and took wee pieces of bread and put it in the tube which acted as the oesophagus. Next Mr Edwards put the yogurt in the tube. Then he added half of the coke. At the bottom of the tube there was a plastic bag that acted as the stomach. When you run around your food gets all squished then four hours later you need to poo. Megan pulled some string to release the food then it went down another tube. Then she unclipped the pegs and all the food went out of the tights into a basin which was the toilet.  We all thought it was disgusting!
