5.PCH.4.1 Summarize the functions of the organs that make up the digestive system.
The student will list in sequence the organs which make up the digestive system.
The student will explain the process of breaking down foods to create nutrients.
The student will consume fiber-rich foods, drink water, and exercise regularly to benefit the digestive system.
What is the Digestive System?
The digestive system breaks down food into smaller pieces that the body can use. Digestion begins in the mouth where Food is taken in, chewed, and swallowed. The esophagus muscles push food from the mouth to the stomach. Digestion continues in the stomach where acids made by the stomach help break down food. Food leaves the stomach and enters the small intestine. A liquid made in the liver goes into the small intestine where it breaks down even more. Nutrients are absorbed into the walls of the small intestine and carried throughout the body by the blood. Waste is passed to the large intestine until it leaves the body through the rectum. Digestive health is enhanced by eating foods high in fiber drinking sufficient water, and exercising regularly.
Below, are the different parts of the digestive system. Guess the order of the digestive system, and see how many you can get correct. We are going to go over the digestive system today, and by the end of this lesson, you will know this in your sleep!
Gallbladder, Stomach, Mouth, Colon, Anus, Esophagus, Small Intestine (Large Intestine), Pancreas
Did you get this?
Mouth, Esophagus, Stomach, Small Intestine, Pancreas, Liver, Gallbladder, Colon (Large Intestine), Rectum and Anus
The mouth is where digestion begins
We break down food by chewing
Saliva helps break the food down into something your body can use and absorb
The esophagus is a transporting tool
It is located at the back of the mouth, and once the food is chewed the food travels down the esophagus through a series of muscular contractions
The food is then delivered to the stomach
The stomach acts as a tupperware bowl
The food is constantly being broken down
The stomach has an acidic lining that helps break down food into a usable form the body can use
Once successfully broken down the food goes to the small intestine
The small intestine is a 22 foot muscular tube that also breaks down the food
It consists of three components: the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum
All these components work to break down food
The duodenum breaks down the food for the most part while the jejunum and the ileum absorbs the nutrients from the content
Contents enter as a solid and leave as a liquid and goes into the pancreas
The pancreas releases enzymes into the duodenum
Those enzymes break down the fats, protein and carbohydrates
The liver has multiple functions
Processes the nutrients taken in from the small intestine
The liver works as a chemical factory; it breaks down harmful chemicals that come from the small intestines by detoxifying harmful chemicals and drugs
*Detoxify(ing) – To remove toxic or bad substances
Stores and concentrates bile, and releases back to the duodenum to help absorb and digest fats
Colon (Large Intestine
S-Shaped 6 foot long tube
The colon is responsible for processing waste so that emptying the bowels is easy
The colon keeps its S-shape until it bile passes through, it normally takes 36 hours for bile to go through the colon
Stool is consists of food and bacteria
The bacteria involved is good bacteria such as protects us from bad bacteria, processes waste products
Once the colon is full it passes the product on to the rectum
The rectum is an 8 inch chamber that is connected to the anus and colon
Much like the stomach it is also a container filled
The rectum receives the bile from the colon and holds the bile until it is time for the bile to evacuate
Anytime the rectum receives bile or gas sensors go to the brain and the brain decides whether or not the bile or gas can be released
It is a 2 inch canal
The lining on the upper end of the anus can tell if the bile received from the rectum is a gas, liquid or solid
The anus relies on the lower pelvic muscles to hold the stool in
There are muscles in the anus that help keep the stool from coming out when it is not supposed to
When we feel the urge to go to the bathroom the muscles on the outside of the anus relax and releases the stool
Mouth – Contains teeth and saliva to help break down food
Esophagus- Transport tool, carries the food from the mouth to the stomach
Stomach- Container like; holds food acid lining breaks down food
Small Intestine- Has three segments that break down food and absorbs its nutrients
Pancreas- Breaks down the fats, proteins and carbohydrates
Liver- Processes nutrients taken in from the small intestine
Gallbladder- Stores and concentrates bile
Colon (Large Intestine)- S-shaped 6 foot tube
Rectum- 8 inch chamber connected to the colon and anus
Anus- 2 inch canal that releases the bile

I will post the game Pin
This is a drawing of the human body
Draw the human body and the organs we learned about in today’s lesson and label each part of the digestive system
I will group you in groups of 4.
Of the 4 students, 2 will be from my class, and the other 2 will be from the Swedish class
Make a presentation in Google Drive on the digestive system
Talk about the different parts, and their functions
