Amazing Anatomy: Digestion
Workshop at the Museum
Ontario: grade 5

Amazing Anatomy is a hands-on, inquiry-based exploration of mammalian anatomy and what it reveals about the way mammals have adapted to their habitats.
Students examine dentition, and digestive systems to make links between these physical adaptations and their place in the food web.
Students learn about the principles of digestion and the conversion of food to energy. Students will dissect a real owl pellet.
