This manual contains detailed instructions for teaching students about the digestive system, including eye-catching demonstrations and fun, inquiry-based activities that allow young children to use the scientific method. It begins with an explanation of mechanical digestion in the mouth, explains the role of enzymes in the process of chemical digestion, and then follows the process through the esophagus, stomach, and small and large intestines. It examines the roles of the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder, as well as the appendix, and it ends with a final role-play activity in which students get to simulate how the entire digestive system works.
The book comes with downloadable worksheets for children, as well as an array of downloadable images to project for the students to see. It is appropriate for teaching children ages 8-13 (grades 3-7).
