4. A Cartoon Version of the Digestive System

To help my students understand the digestive system, I’ve used this cartoon version of the system. It shows how the digestive system as a linear disassembly line that uses mechanical and chemical means to break food down into a form that can be transported by your bloodstream and absorbed by your cells.

Start by mastering this representation. Then you can move on to the more realistic representation below it.
