We have been learning about our different types of teeth (incisors, canines and molars) and what they are used for. We had fun making models of human teeth and gums to illustrate this.
Our stomach is a very important part of our digestive system. Food that has been swallowed is churned up here broken down even further by chemicals. We had lots of fun making models of stomachs out of sandwich bags, bread and cola. We then squeezed them in and out to show how our real stomachs work.
Our learning about digestion contnued when we drew around some of our friends to make body outlines. We all then used these templates to draw the most important parts of the digestive system, label them, and write a bit about what they do.
We used our learning about electrical conductors and insulators to create a switch which we could use to turn a bulb on and off.
We investigated to see whether adding more and more wires into a circuit will cause a bulb to become, brighter, dimmer, or stay the same. We then tried to explain our findings.
