Bellwork Time!
● Work with your table on this!
● List at least 5 foods that you ate for breakfast today.
● Try to list as many organs that you think helped in the digestion of
your breakfast.
See how many you got correct!
● The person in the middle stand up and HONESTLY say how many
you got!
5 Teaching Points
Food provides us with energy.
Helps grow and repair cells.
Our body requires 6 essential nutrients `to function.
There are many organs involved in digestion, which is when food is
broken down into usable forms of energy (ATP).
● There are two types of digestive processes, mechanical and
chemical reactions.
Food and its purposes
● Food provides us with energy for everything
● Provides materials for growing and for repairing tissues
● Food contain nutrients, substances that provide energy and help
carry out essential processes like respiration, etc.
Provides short term energy
Made up of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen
Make materials to make cell parts
Pasta, rice, potato, etc.
Healthy Fats
2x energy than carbohydrates (long term energy)
Unsaturated Fat
Makes up cell membrane
Protect/support internal organs
Insulates our body
Unhealthy Fats
Saturated Fat
Trans Fat
● Can sometimes be made by our body
● Helps in chemical reactions, like blood clotting
● All vitamin helps your body based on its letter (Vitamin C is food
for your skin)
Do not provide energy
Keep our body healthy (calcium provides strong bones, etc.)
Not made by living things
We get them by eating them
Absorbed by plants through roots
Meat, cheese, eggs, and dairy product
Used for tissue growth and repair
Chains of amino acid makes a big protein
Skin diseases results from lack of protein
Also known as H20
Allows organisms to function properly
Soften downs food and makes it easier to digest
Helps in blood circulation because its a good solvent
Let’s have some Brain-pop!
● Food is converted into energy (ATP) first through digestion and
then cellular respiration
● Mechanical Digestion: food is broken down physically
● Chemical Digestion: chemicals break down food
Organs involved
● Mouth, salivary gland, esophagus, liver, gallbladder, stomach,
small intestine, large intestine, rectum and anus
The mouth and the esophagus
● Saliva is an enzyme that helps in both mechanical and chemical in
● Food flows into the stomach through the esophagus
● Esophagus: tube containing mucus helps in flowing of food from
the mouth to the stomach (peristalsis)
The stomach
● Stomach stores food and more mechanical processes takes place
● Acids such as digestive juice/pepsin, hydrochloric acid, help in
chemical reactions
● The liver produces bile, which helps in breaking fat particles
● Nutrients are absorbed from the food
● Villis in the small intestine, help in absorptions and circulation of
Ending of Digestion
● Water is absorbed in the large intestine
● The waste goes out of your anus and gets released
Pick a Corner!
● There are 4 corners, A, B, C, and D.
● Listen to the question carefully.
● If you think you heard the right answer, go to the corner with the
letter that represents your answer.

Arranging Processes of Digestion
The steps of digestion given below are WRONG.
Re-arrange them in order that we eat food in.
Raise your hand high once you are done!
The first one to get the correct answer will get a lovely prize and
will also have to perform a surprise act with it!
Here we GO!
Water is absorbed in the large intestine.
The food flows into the stomach through the esophagus.
Waste products are released from †he ånus.
Both mechanical and chemical takes place in the mouth.
Nutrients are absorbed in the small intestine.
Food enters your mouth.
Acids such as digestive juice/pepsin, hydrochloric acid, help in
chemical reactions in the stomach.
