Last term we explored the digestion system. We began by creating our own model digestive system. We then explored what happened to food at each stage of the digestive system, creating our own waste! During our tooth experiment, we were amazed by the effects some liquids have on the enamel of our teeth. Luckily, we found that toothpaste does successfully protect our teeth from some of the nasty reactions seen without it! See the pictures for our fun experiments and activities below.
