Let students explore the stomach - by creating stomach and using it to digest actual food!
Also available as a part of the Digestive System Teacher Pack!
During this printable, reproducible lab, students create a simulated stomach and use it to mechanically and chemically digest food. They then analyze the process.
The Stomach Model Lab can be used to introduce the stomach or mechanical and chemical digestion, as well as provide students a chance to continue learning after the concepts have been introduced.
Students will be able to model and describe mechanical and chemical digestion in the stomach.
