LF: To understand the simple functions of the basic parts of the digestive system in humans.

To finish off our 'Animals Including Humans' unit, we are going to explore digestion!  

Digestion is an important process in the human body. It helps us get the nutrients our body needs to stay healthy.  

Digestion happens in the digestive system, which begins at the mouth and ends when we empty our bowels.


Watch this lesson video to understand each stage of the digestive system before moving on to the PowerPoint and practical activity.  You will need: A tea-towel, a glass of water, a glass of orange juice, a banana, a bowl, some biscuits, a sealable plastic bag and one leg from a pair of tights.  I would love to see some pictures of you completing this practical activity.  Email me here:

Have fun! smiley
