  5. Arrange the images in the correct order and label them to make a map of how the digestive system works.You do not need to include every image and every keyword in your diagram.  Just use the ones that make sense to you.Here is an example of the concept map I began.  You could start yours like mine or choose to do it totally differently.

  3. Take the quiz and send the results to me via a spreadsheet.  You need to get at least 8/10 before you proceed to the next step.
  4. Investigate a diet.

    Many people choose different diets for different reasons.  For example, some people are allergic to certain foods.  Some people don’t eat certain foods for ethical reasons.  These people still need to eat a balanced diet.

    Investigate one of the following diets:
    a)  Vegan
    b)  Vegetarian
    c)  Celiac
    d)  Lactose intolerant
    e)  Diabetic

    Answer the questions based on the diet you choose to investigate.
    a)  What foods are excluded (not eaten) on this diet?
    b)  What nutrients are these foods (in part a) a major source of?
    c)  Give a suggestion for what foods could be eaten instead of those in part a) so that people on this diet would still have a balanced diet.

  5. Finished?  Need more to do?  Explore BrainPop for other videos on digestion and nutrition.  If you find a good one, share it with the class!
