Last week, Avocets learnt about the digestive system. What better way to do it than get all mucky looking at each part in a practical way!
We started with the mouth and the process of chewing and swallowing food. The food then travelled down the oesophagus and into the stomach where we had more of the digestive process happening with some stomach acid (orange juice). We then continued with the intestines before finishing with the rectum/anus.
As always the children were both disgusted and fascinated! I always like all the facial expressions, which you can see in the photos. Enjoy.’
