Morning all. Here’s a fun activity you can try at home that teaches you about where food goes inside your body and how it is digested.

  1. Click this link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znm3gwx 
  2. Watch the digestion video on the website.
  3. Try to remember these four organs in order; mouth, stomach, intestines and rectum. Get someone in your house to test you.
  4. Try activity 1 at the bottom of the page, an online interactive quiz.
  5. Try activity 2 if you can find the correct items around your home. Be careful – it could get a little messy!

I’d love to see some of your digestion models!
