SCIENCE: The last few stops in the Digestive System

Posted on November 15, 2011. Filed under: Science | Tags: , , , |

What is going on in each picture?  Choose two (2) of the pictures from the activity in class and, in a COMMENT, explain what is happening to the “food” (chyme or waste) and what part of the digestive system it is passing through.  Explain what is present in the picture: muscles, enzymes, etc.  Be as specific as possible!

Also, REPLY to at least one of your classmate’s comments as well.

Please use the following pictures to explain what type of digestion is happening in the stomach.  (Your explanation should be several sentences long and should use the words “muscles”, “surface area”, and “enzymes.”) 

Remember: Your explanation should be several sentences long and should use the words “muscles”, “surface area”, and “enzymes.”

SCIENCE: If it’s not gravity…?

Please post a comment and discuss your ideas about this question with your classmates.
