This live-action program teaches students that, for food to be of use to our body’s cells, it needs to be broken down and absorbed into the blood stream. This is the job of the digestive system, a complex series of tools that includes teeth, saliva, bile, acids and enzymes designed to reduce nutrients to a form that can be delivered to cells.
