This digestive system human body bundle includes PowerPoint presentation, student notes, “Trek the Tract” lab, student friendly diagrams for labeling, and our Human Body Digestion Story Project: An Epic Tale of Food's Digestive Journey.
These condensed system notes are designed in a straightforward and simplistic manner to allow for elaboration, question and answer period, and extension where desired. Notes are organized and easy to understand. Students listen to lecture, watch the engaging PowerPoint (which includes blue hyperlinks to cool websites, bell work/sponges with animated answers, animated slides that have simple artwork to help solidify difficult concepts), and instead of writing tedious notes, they fill in the blanks of key words for the system. The notes then lead into engaging labs and projects for the Digestive system.
Students will learn about the organs of the digestive system and their function. They will follow food through the digestive tract using the “Trek the Tract” lab. Students will use ticker tape to show the length, structure, and function of the organ they are assigned. They present their organ to the class and construct a replica of the digestive tract after connecting all of the ticker tape pieces in order from mouth to anus. Then, have them create their own journey as they pretend to be a be piece of food on an epic journey through the digestive tract in Human Body Digestion Story Project: An Epic Tale of Food's Digestive Journey.
