People enjoy all kinds of food--strawberries, pizza, salad, chocolate--but how many people really know how food travels through the body and how the body reacts? Digestion provides students a chance to learn about the journey food takes through the body and how it supplies the body with the nutrients it needs. The book can also be used to teach students how to sequence events and to summarize as they read.
