Digestive Fun in Year 4

Magpies completed a science experiment this week, replicating the digestive system in the human body.

This involved putting some food (banana and cracker) in a bowl and mashing it up with a fork (replicating the mouth) before adding water as saliva.


When mashed they passed this into the stomach, via the oesophagus by tipping the contents into a plastic bag. They added orange juice (acid) and water (enzymes) to break down the food.  They then passed this into the intestines (pair of tights), and squeezed out all the goodness from the food.
