Introduce the main food groups to your students with our Discovering digestion
module, and look at why we need each of them in our diet. You will
briefly discuss the importance of a balanced diet followed by two
experiments that look at the presence of nutrients in different types of
food, and how the body gets energy from them.
This module contains an introduction and two 40-minute lab
activities, to be delivered over two lessons, followed by a quiz that
brings together learning from both experiments.
