Digestion – a messy example

Last week, the Doves all got their hands dirty and created a working model of the process of digestion. The pictures speak for themselves but, their faces really were a picture. Particularly, when the food left the stomach, via the duodenum into the small intestines. AND, even more so when the food left the rectum! Many of our groups realised that the diet of their fictitious person wasn’t ideal during this final stage. Let’s just say they may need a little more fibre and a bit more water to ease the digestive process and leave it there… I’m sure the children can fill in the blanks for you!
