Teacher’s Talk – Day 2 Foods: Manipulating the Food Guide

Today we recreated the digestive system from household objects. The students did a wonderful job talking about the process and relating each object to a structure and function of digestions and how we get the nutrients from our foods. Most importantly we learned that all food has nutrients of some sort. We also figured out that cooked foods might be easier to chew, but the raw ones go down the esophagus better! Ask your camper about this.
