Digestive System Internet Workshop
McMullan, a New Literacies Research Team member, created this Internet Workshop.
It is designed to introduce you to the issue of
food safety as you study the digestive system. We invite you
to share your discoveries in class as
well as on our
Digestive System : A Kinesthetic Lesson - Digestive System, a
Kinesthetic Lesson is a lesson designed for students in sixth through
twelfth grades. Students physically move food through a simulated
digestive system. A culmination can be a diagram which we can be
posted on this web site.
Journey into the Digestive System
- The task of this WebQuest
is for the members of your group to transform yourselves into a slice
of pizza! Check out the web site to find out more! Some of
the links are outdated by the web resources on this page will help you
on your journey. We're sure your global friends would find your group
projects most interesting.
Digestive Activity - Students will explore how well their school
lunch choices meet their bodies’ energy needs. They will design and
redesign their school lunch choices until a measurement of the
energy their school lunch choices add to their bodies’ energy stores
is equivalent to the energy their bodies use up doing work.
Completing this design project, students acquire knowledge of how
their bodies' organs and organ systems interact to transform energy
in food into energy used up doing work, how their bodies’ organs and
organ systems interact to provide all cells' energy needs.
Digestive Activity - Students trace nutrients as they are processed
by the digestive system, pass into the blood, and are transported to
body cells. Send us their charts to showcase.
Antacids - A great resource to
support hands-on activities in the classroom that are designed to
investigate how commercial antacids affect acid in the stomach.
