Making a digestive system

At the end of last term we had great fun making a digestive system model.

We were surprised to find out we were using Mrs Austin's tights as our intestines, pushing through crushed cream crackers mixed with orange juice. The orange juice was the bile which breaks down our food. The nutrients which our body use filtrated through the tights. The waste passed through the intestine (tights!). 

This proved an engaging way to learn about the function of our digestive system, even if it was a bit smelly!
