Yesterday, year 3 went on a trip to the Science Museum. First, we looked at lots of interesting objects associated with medicine and the human body, including a real human heart!
After lunch, we has a really interesting workshop about food and our digestive system. we saw how digestion begins in the mouth with our teeth and saliva breaking down our food. Then, the food goes down our throut and into our stomach, where gas from the food get released…this is why we burp!
Finally, the food travels through the intestines, where all the nutrients gets taken out and sent into our blood. The rest then leaves gets pushed out of our body as poo!
It was really gross watching the food go through the cycle, but funny and interesting too!
