Our The Digestive System lesson plan introduces students to the digestive system, including associated vocabulary. During this lesson, students are asked to work creatively to write, draw, or design a creative presentation explaining the digestive system to others, which they then present to the class, utilizing their presentation and public speaking skills. Students are also asked to match terms to their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, the students will be able to identify the digestive system and its part and functions, as well as trace the movement of food through the digestive system. The students will also be able to write, draw, or design a creative presentation explaining the digestive system to others.
