Digestive System Worksheets – 40+page Packet

Digestive-System-WorksheetsWe had so much fun with our Digestive System Unit.  We did hands on activities to see how the digestive tract works (how nutrients pass through), made “fake”vomit, measured out the length of the digestive system and more! We broke our unit into three parts:

  • Part I: Digestive System — Mouth
  • Part II: Digestive System — Swallowing, How the epiglottis works
  • Part III: Digestive System — The Digestive Tract

I made a Digestive System packet which also includes lapbook pieces to create your own digestive system lapbook or interactive notebook. Also included are the hands-on activities our kids did during this unit.



The Digestive System Unit Packet  includes lapbook/notebook pieces: DigestiveSystem-LapbookPages Also included are worksheets and our hand-on activities of the mouth



You will also find worksheets and activity ideas about swallowing, the epiglottis and choking in this packet:



We included all of our hands-on activity ideas in this packet as well:   Digestive-SystemHandsOnActivities

Esophagus-Muscles-Contract-and-RelaxSo here are more details about the Digestive Unit Worksheets and how we used it:

I shared all of our hands on activities in our study of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines… everything from recreating the muscle movement along the esophagus to making fake vomit and measuring out the length of our digestive tract.  Here are the worksheets I made for my kids to go along with all of those activities. I actually did a lot of those hands-on activities before we worked on these sheets… I just slipped information in as we did activities so that when we went over the sheets, most of the information was already familiar to them. A good overall review sheet for the kids was the first page.  They checked off the digestive system part (such as the esophagus) and colored that same part in on their page.

The next couple of days, we went over more detailed information about the digestive system. We’ll obviously have to come back to this in a few years when we rotate back to this material again. As you can see, there wasn’t a whole lot of writing so my daughter (7) was just fine with them.

IMG_4601DigestiveSystem The last thing they did was this matching page which gave a brief description of each part of the digestive system and the organs associated with it (it’s on page 3 of the packet):

We had two books we really used a lot for these units: Human Anatomy Coloring Book (affiliate link) has pages you can print out and color in.

Human-Anatomy-Coloring-BookAnd the The Body Book: Easy-to-Make Hands-on Models That Teach (affiliate link) has really neat models that you can make. We did the joints, bones of the body (see our model here), and some other things, but more about those in those other posts. :)
