The digestive system

How poo is made

The children were investigating the digestive system and wee looking at the process that happens in each stage. Beginning with the chopping and mashing of the food in the mouth with saliva helping to break up the food. The next process was show the stomach breaks down the food to a liquid using acid. The next step squeezing all the goodness out through the small intestine to help the body absorb the nutrients. The following stage was in the large intestine where the body squeezes out all the water and salt into the body. Finally to the anus and the waste product, Poo.
