Digestion and the Food Chain

by Micki Halsey Randall

Students begin with a brief exploration of biomes. Then, as a class, the students choose a specific biome and examine a food web within it. This will lead to a discussion about predator/prey relationships. Students will develop an understanding of the differences within the digestive systems of different organisms and how the foods eaten correspond to the digestive system and biome of each organism. Finally, we examine the digestive system of humans in detail. The culminating event is a pop-up book about human digestion.

My Body, My Health - Nutrition and Digestion

by Cattaraugus Allegany BOCES Math Science Technology Dept

Students will examine the parts of the USDA Food Pyramid, journal their food choices and analyze those choices, identify the variety of foods to be eaten from each food group, and read and compare food labels for nutritional value. They will also describe and demonstrate the functions of the major parts of the digestive system. The skills emphasized in the kit are brainstorming, discussing, collecting data, interpreting data, making decisions, generalizing, classifying, measuring, and analyzing.

This link will take you to an article from Reuters. Sample quote: "The U.S. government spends about $11.7 billion a year on school programs that provide lunch for over 30 million children and breakfast for more than 10 million -- but has not updated nutritional standards and meal requirements since 1995."
