Science Year 4: Animals including humans – the digestive system!

Dolphin, Home Slider, Science, Tiger, TV

This topic begins with exploration of the Digestive System.  Pupils created a model using equipment such as tights, a plastic bag, crackers, bananas, orange juice and a paper cup. This was a fab practical!  Pupils were able to link the household items to a part of the digestive system, beginning to understand how each part plays a role.  They really enjoyed seeing the end result!

Further practical enquiries will require pupils to examine teeth from various specimens and test how sugar can affect their own teeth.
