How we digest food!

two children sat a school desk filling and sealing a plastic bag to create the replica of a stomach with contents child, having filled a plastic bag with something, is sealing it up child sat at a school desk crushing biscuits and a banana inside a plastic bag to replicate stomach contents (banana skin on desk front of shot)

Y6 carried out a Science experiment to see how food was digested. We used a zip lock bag to replicate the stomach full of banana and biscuits.

Water was used instead of saliva and we squeezed the mixture as the stomach would in order to break down the food.

Once it was “digested” we cut a hole in the bag and expelled the “waste” just as the human body would!
