To kick off our second year at the E-Base, we commenced with our Food and Nutrition Module.
As an introduction to the module we went to the basics- our digestion process.
Through an extremely entertaining session, we went through every stage of digestion with the help of a slice of bread. Right from the point we start salivating on the sight and smell of the bread to the point of discarding the ‘bread poo’, the students examined it all through an external digestion activity.
But, the highlight of the workshop for the students was when they found out the small intestine is not only longer than the large intestine, but is 21 feet long! We still think it was the ‘bread poo’!
A quick true and false trail game around the E-Base concluded this workshop, sending the students home with several small facts about our digestive system!
