Manipulatives illustrate the sequential chemical and biochemical breakdown of the major components of food as it passes through the human digestive tract. Highly visible, magnetic components stick to almost every black- or whiteboard used in schools today. Two large diagrams depict the human digestive system and a focus diagram that shows the connection between the stomach, liver, pancreas, and small intestine. Magnetic color-coded cards indicate anatomical features, chemical digestive agents, digestive enzymes, and the hormones responsible for regulation of the process of digestion of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and nucleic acids. Cards can be arranged in a variety of ways to clarify the digestive process. Kit includes 39 magnetic cards (2-5/16 x 4-11/16), 7 x 18-13/16 digestion diagram, 7 x 14-1/8 focus diagram, teacher guide, and reproducible student worksheets.
