The digestive system, structure and function
Teachers’ instructions on how to use the kit
This is a teaching kit that aims to help the students to imagine the digestive system simply as one tube so they can draw it accurately, name the different parts with their proper sequence, and hence the function of each one.
During this unit, students will practice several skills, like listening, writing, thinking and drawing.
They will have lots of fun colouring, cutting and pasting.
All the activities have one part for the teacher to do, and an accompanying one for the kids to do at the same time, so they are all interactive.
The activities are:
1. One tube
2. Names of the parts
3. Functions of the parts
4. Drawing the system
5. Making a bulletin board
6. Creative writing
