The Digestive System is essential in the absortion of nutrients into the body, but…our pupils need to check it by themselves in order to Reason with Evidence.
And that is why Dolphins have been following food on its digestive journey.
Using the Conecction, Form, Change and Function keys and different Habits of mind such as Take Risk, Describe and Express we have been exploring all the processes that are carried out.
Firstly identifying the mayor organs involved in this System, connecting with their previous knowledge and experiencing with similar materials
Secondly, observing the action and its effect as a result (Causation Key) relating the organs to their main functions
SMALL INTESTINE LARGE INTESTINE
And finally documenting what they have been learning in a Conceptual Map thanks to this experience
In short, they have used their Five Senses to understand just how much work our body has to do every time we eat.
SEE YOU NEXT JOURNEY!
