School System and Digestive System

School System and Digestive System

Introduction

To enhance your understanding about systems, you should now compare and contrast a school system to a different system—the digestive system.


Exploration

First, read Your Digestive System on the KidsHealth website.

Now that you know a little about the digestive system, take a look at the Digestive System diagram and answer these questions on the School System and Digestive System student sheet:

  1. Based on what you know about systems, explain why the digestive system is a “system.”
  2. Choose three parts of the digestive system and describe their functions.
  3. Now, choose one part of the digestive system and describe how it affects other parts of the digestive system.
  4. Describe how a school system and a digestive system are similar.
  5. Describe how a school system and digestive system are different.
  6. We discussed how a school system is actually a subsystem of a larger educational system. Is the digestive system also a subsystem of a larger system? How so?
