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

   MOUTH                                                                                                                                                                     OESOPHAGUS



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.
