The digestive system is made up of organs that break down food into protein, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, and fats, which the body needs for energy, growth, and repair. After food is chewed and swallowed, it goes down the esophagus and enters the stomach, where it is further broken down by powerful stomach acids. From the stomach the food travels into the small intestine. This is where your food is broken down into nutrients that can enter the bloodstream through tiny hair-like projections. The excess food that the body doesn't need or can't digest is turned into waste and is eliminated from the body.

Watch this!! Decomposition of Mc Donalds burgers and fries! I think we should do this as an experiment in Class!!
Students can bring in a fast food burger or taco etc. to class in a glass jar or plastic container so we can see through. We will watch as a class to see how long it takes for the food to break down.!!
