Product Description

This digestive system project explores the connections between the nutrients our food and the roles of the various organs of the digestive system.

To complete this project, students will need a poster board, markers or colored pencils, access to nutrient labels (printed out by a teacher or easily accessible through the internet), and copies of the guidelines, rubric, and diagrams provided in this resource.
