Question: What is the order of the organs for the digestive system? By: Aaron & Nikki Here’s the answer :D • First, the food goes in the mouth and it gets broken down by salivary enzymes. • Then, it goes down the Esophagus which is a long tube and it pushes the food down by muscle movements. • After, it gets dropped into the Stomach and the food gets churned and bathed in a very strong acid. • More on next slide. • Somewhat later, the Duodenum comes it’s a pouch that squirts liquids in the food. • After, the Small Intestine comes, it makes the food almost solid waste. • Almost done, the Large Intestine absorbs water from the food. • Lastly, the food gets stored in the rectum until it gets excreted via the anus. Key Points to REMEMBER! • Remember how the poop gets small and big like small intestine to large intestine. Fun Facts Number Organs • • • • • • • 1. Mouth 2. Esophagus 3. Stomach 4.
