Educator Resources for Digestive System

Yum! Food sure tastes good! But how do we digest it? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby teach you about the ins and outs of the digestive system! Learn about how mechanical digestion happens, what chemicals aid in chemical digestion, where the digestive cycle starts, and what juices in your stomach help break down food. Discover how ingestion works, what substances are absorbed into your stomach right away when you eat, and how many hours it takes your stomach to turn food into this nasty stuff called chyme. It’s kind of a gory story, but don’t worry - we’ll try not to make you hurl!
