What Happens to Your Food?

In our yr 5 & 6 extension group, we have been finding out about kids on the other side of the world who don't have water that's clean or have no water at all. Soon we will be going to the museum to see the Aqua exhibit. It's purpose is to help people understand how important water is and that we need it. We have found out about a bottle, the life saver bottle, that if dirty water is put in to it, it will come out clean. Then we started thinking up our own ideas of how we could get clean water over to the people that need it. Finally we got in to groups, we each had a part of the digestive system that we had to animate. I got the small intestines, this is where the nutrients from your food goes. The other parts that people got were the mouth, oesophagus, stomach and small intestines. Then there is a little surprise at the end. Anyway, the whole point of doing this was to see a healthy persons digestive system, and soon we will be moving on to doing a, child's digestive system that has poor health and is malnourished.

I think our movie was quite good, it showed clearly all the parts of digestion, made people laugh and we even made a trailer to go with it
(that is the small part at the start). But I think there was still room for improvement, that was in our voiceovers. They were very well written, but unfortunately you couldn't really hear them. So on a scale from 1-10 I would give our movie a 8/10.

  1. Hi Litia,

    I now know were the food goes. But I think that it was interesting from where your body goes. I really love the extension work on how they put the movie together.
