So this is a revision lesson with my Year 8s where students come up with a creative resource to revise what we had learned so far. What we were learning was Life Processes in Animals. One student came up with this poem on Digestion that I thought was absolutely fantastic!! So I had to share it 🙂 Here goes…
Through the teeth, through the gums
Watch out belly, here it comes.
Down your throat, into your tummy
I love this food, its so yummy.
Mixed in saliva, into a ball
Into the oesophagus, so tiny and small.
Into the stomach, where it’s tossed and turned
If you throw up, it will definitely burn.
In a long thin tube, food is absorbed
The small intestine is what it’s called.
Waste is stored in the rectum, we’re nearly done
Then the waste comes out your bum
