This is a Digestion Unit written for second grade in mind. There are large pictures of the different parts of digestion to display, one at a time, as students learn about each stage of digestion. There is an unlabeled digestion paper that can be pasted in students’ Science Notebooks to be filled in, one stage at a time. There are “active” experiments to show students what happens at each stage of digestion. I have listed the technology sites, (movies and reading only), and books for students to see and study from, day
by day. Included in this unit is a day by day “protocol” for teachers to
follow as they teach about one part of digestion at a time.
Students will be writing their own digestion stories, day by day, focusing on one part of digestion at a time. Each chapter will be told from the “Point of View” of their favorite food. This is one of my favorite Science Units to teach!
