As part of our Healthy Body, Healthy Mind topic we were getting to know what happens to food inside our bodies; a few of us were slightly horrified!
In groups, we recreated the digestive system using everyday items from home to be able to test the affects of water on digesting food. Some groups ‘drank’ water with every meal and others did not. We could clearly see how much more difficult it was without water, with one group even becoming ‘constipated’!
It was a great, hands-on learning experience to explore how food gets turned into faeces!
