SC2 Life processes and living things Humans and other animals This activity goes beyond the curriculum by teaching about digestion. This lesson is a topic that is not covered in the KS2 National Curriculum at the moment. The activities and the presentation are very useful as part of a healthy eating project or campaign or even to just do something fun and educational.

2 The two activities included in this session contain information regarding the digestive system. They give clear indication of what the digestive organs look like and what their functions are. The first activity provides the pupils with an understanding of the positioning of the digestive organs in the body in relation to each other. These activities can be used as part of a specific digestion lesson or independently. The Top Trump cards can be used recreationally at break times. The lesson lasted approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes. The topic of digestion was introduced using a powerpoint presentation. Included in the presentation is a video lasting approximately 3 minutes. This also included information about how the lesson was going to run and instructions for the following activities. The first activity required the pupils to use the information from the presentation to place the digestive organs in their right position on the human body model. The pupils were then required to label each of the organs correctly. The second activity required the pupils to play a game of Top Trump cards. These cards were all based on digestion.

3 Activity one Building a human digestive system Approximately 15 mins This activity involves the pupils working in groups of 5 or 6. They are provided with a poster of a blank human body. They are also provided with card cut outs of the main digestive organs including: gall bladder, small intestine, large intestine, stomach, liver and esophagus. The pupils are required to position the organs in the correct place on the human body. They are then required to place the correct labels on the organs. The pupils should be able to complete this activity successfully if they retain the information provided in the powerpoint presentation at the beginning of the lesson. If they struggle it may be useful to guide them through the problem using the following book Food and Digestion. Your body inside-and out (Solaway, 2007). The following image is the finished product. The pupils should aim to have their human body looking exactly like this image. The teachers will have to provide the pupils with similar images to work with. The outline of the human body can be found on wikipedia and is free for the public to use. The labels and the organ images will have to be hand drawn and painted.

4 Activity Two Top Trumps game Approximately 25 minutes This activity involves getting into groups of 5 or 6. One person in the group is selected to start the game, this person shuffles the pack of cards and hands an equal number of cards to each member of the group. The first person reads the description on their card to the rest of the group and picks an item from the list. The rest of the group read out their number for the same item. The person with the largest number wins that round. The game then continues. There are 29 cards in each set including an instructions card.

19 Homework Find the word This activity involves finding the word amongst the sentence. This word will be related to the digestive system and the process of digestion. An example is given at the beginning of the work sheet. There are 10 questions for the students to work through.

20 Homework Answers Please find below the asnwers to the homework sheet. Q1. Fibre Q2. Bile Q3. Nose Q4. Brain Q5.Stomach Q6. Pancreas Q7. Liver Q8. Mouth Q9. Eyes Q10. Saliva

21 Test Approximately 25 minutes This test is optional. It may be a useful tool to test the pupil s understanding of the lesson and the resources. The test is arranged in a child friendly layout and involves the use of colouring. Year 3 or 4: Boy or girl: Please complete these questions before the lesson. Do not worry if you don t know the answers, just try your best! Pick ONE answer for each question. Colour in the circle. Q1. Is this sentence true or false? Digestion is how we break down our food and remove the waste from our body. TRUE FALSE Q2. Which organ is part of the digestive system? Kidneys Heart Stomach Lungs Q3. What does the liver do? Makes bile Helps us to see our food Carries nutrients from food around the body Chews our food and breaks it down

22 Q4. What organ makes saliva? Liver Pancreas Tongue Salivary gland Read the question carefully and follow the instructions. Q5.Label the three organs below. Example: PANCREAS

23 Q6. Match the sentence to the correct word by drawing an arrow. Example: Teeth Chew the food and break it down into smaller pieces. Enzymes They allow us to see our food. Bacteria It is a long tube that connects the mouth to the stomach. Oesophagus They speed up the break down of food and are found in the stomach and the pancreas. Eyes Some are helpful. They help the body absorb vitamins. They are found in the large intestine. Gall bladder Stores bile and releases it into the small intestine.

24 Please find below the answers to the test. Test Answers 1. True 2. Stomach 3. Carries nutrients from food around the body 4. Salivary gland 5. Image one = brain Image two = stomach Image three = large intestine 6. Enzymes - They speed up the breakdown of food and they are found in the stomach and the pancreas Bacteria - Some are helpful. They help the body absorb vitamins. They are found in the large intestine. Oesophagus - It is a long tube that connects the mouth to the stomach Eyes - They allow us to see our food Gall bladder - stores bile and releases it into the small intestine
