Tracey realised that the pattern of the pathways and spaces in the orchard area could be used as a model of the human digestive system, so she mapped out a plan, and our student volunteer Komal got to work on creating the elements with some extra ingenious ideas from Joyce. The results seem to have gone down a treat with the pupils, especially when we sprayed them with water to show when the body releases different liquid chemicals to aid digestion.
|Looking into the "mouth"...|
We've now got a kit together, including all the relevant elements of the digestive system, even a tongue with taste-buds (great idea Joyce!), so if you know of a class that will be studying digestion and might enjoy a trip down the alimentary canal, just let us know!
