Student task:Develop a flowchart that demonstrates the interconnectedness of the organs involved in the digestion process. Include specifics about how food is transformed into usable energy in an organism.
This rubric will assist teachers in assessing students' abilities to create a model in flowchart format of the process of digestion in organisms. This summative task was written based off of NGSS performance expectations.
The model should not be a flow chart that is made up of just boxes and arrows. Search Google Images for digestion flowcharts and you will see some creative versions. Students must select a particular food and that food must be carried and shown how it changes through the digestion process.
