Starred thought of the Day
*If you can’t change the situation, change your attitude.*
Today we worked on building a model of the digestive system; at least the parts where food travels. It goes Mouth—> Pharynx—> Esophagus—> Stomach—> Small Intestine—> Large Intestine—> Rectum.
We haven’t talked much about what the liver and pancreas do, but we’ll get there.
An observation from our class activity- we saw the small intestine was nearly 7 meters long, and the large intestine was 1.5 meters long. This might go against what many people think of as “Small intestine” and “large intestine.” The truth is, it is the diameter of the organ that tells us whether it is large or small.
