Hop into exploration of a frog's anatomy with this collection of dissection resources. With the help of the included virtual dissection website, worksheets, and printable diagrams, students will have no problem navigating their way...
Down the Hatch
After reading a short passage about the digestive system, kids demonstrate their understanding by responding to a series of comprehension questions.
It's time to play Jeopardy! Learners review body systems as they play a fun game, choosing one of 30 questions ranging from 100 to 500 points, including a hidden Daily Double. A 100 point question: How many bones are found in an adult...
Digestion & Nutrition: a Case Study
Students explore digestion/nutrition and utilize scientific investigation skills. They complete meal logs for several days and graph their results. After analyzing their data, they write formal lab reports.
Ruminating on the Digestive System
Learners compare the digestive systems of the buffalo and of the zebra, diagram their systems, and compare their lengths. For this digestive system lesson plan, students learn about their diets as well.
AP: Chapter 41: Animal Nutrition
Ms. Foglia has created another comprehensive biology worksheet that you can use with your advanced learners. The topic is animal nutrition and the digestive system. Questions address nutrients and deficiencies, stages of food processing,...
Science Concept Maps
A collection of concept maps has some terms filled in and others left blank for young scientists to fill in. This library can provide you with many pop quizzes for all of your middle to high school science curriculum.
Fueling Body Activities - Digestion
Not only is the human digestive system covered in this biology worksheet, learners will also explore the digestive process of other animals. The 30 short-answer questions address modes of heterotrophic nutrition, the function of each...
Unifying themes in animal anatomy and physiology are displayed slide by slide. The main concepts involve the differentiation in cells and tissues, and details are given about fuel management, metabolism, and some other essential processes.
Digestive Process Begins
Take your class on a journey through the digestive track with this resource. The physical and chemical processes of digestion are detailed, along with the names of various structures and substances involved, but the processes of the...
The Digestive System
Discover how the human body's digestive system works with a brain and stomach friendly activity. Scholars taste test a variety of foods to find out how they behave once in the mouth. Class members then play a game called Move That...
Digestion is an amazing and complicated process that provides humans with the energy they need to survive. Lesson six in this series on the science of food uses sliced turkey and a meat tenderizer to demonstrate how enzymes help break...
Experiment to Mimic the Digestive System
Biology lab technicians take a cheese sandwich apart as a demonstration of digestion. They record appearance and mass both before and after the process, which mimics chewing, acid action, and churning. Learners write their own lab...
Horse Science ~ Digestive Physiology of the Horse
Everything you ever wanted to know about the digestive system of a horse is presented in this set of slides. Basic anatomy, factors that affect digestion, and the rate of the passage of food are all included. This may be useful to your...
The focus of this presentation is the digestive system of livestock animals. The simple digestive system of swine is compared to the complex digestive system of a cow. Details of the ruminant stomach are presented, complete with a...
The Digestive Dance
Young scholars read food labels to compare healthy verses non healthy food and then use diagrams to create a poster of the digestive system. In this food lesson plan, students move the food down the digestive track along the digestive...
Enzymes and Catalysts
Students discuss the functioning of the digestive system and the specific enzymes present. They observe the action of amylase on starch to identify characteristics of enzymes then perform an experiment on the effects of temperature on...
Experiment to Mimic the Digestive System
What happens to the food that we eat? Middle-school life science learners delve into the digestive process by completing this laboratory activity. They cut a cheese sandwich into smaller parts to represent chewing, smash it to mimic...
Young scholars study the human digestion system and the functions of the stomach and small intestines. In this digestion lesson plan students view a demonstration on the process.
Human Digestive System
A slide for each major organ of the human digestive system has been collected for this compact presentation. On each slide are bullet points listing characteristics and functions of an organ. The slides are plain white with a single,...
Digestion and Nutrition
Debunk the theory that a soda-and-candy diet is a nutritionally sound concept! Learners first read 2 paragraphs of background information covering essential nutrients, digestion, and homeostasis. Then, they use the information they...
A rather uninspired powerpoint which covers all the information that is required to recap nutrition needs and metabolism but does not include any images or infographics. Some of the information is unusual and specialised to farm animals...
Use this great overview to give information on all aspects of nutrition. By working their way through this PowerPoint, students review a lot of information about the digestive process. Students read many facts on a number of detailed...
