Digestive System Experiment
This short film clip follows primary school teacher, Danny, as he demonstrates a practical experiment which recreates the digestion process in the classroom. Using household items such as paper cups, orange juice and a pair of tights, this demonstration enables children to visualise the process of digestion in an engaging, practical way. This resource has been provided by Reach Out CPD, a programme developed by Imperial College London in partnership with Tigtag.
