FOOD to FECES: An interactive “tour” of the digestive system

Materials needed: 9 color copies, a few b&w copies, scissors and glue stick, crackers and cookies, paper towels, lemon juice, some chicken livers and gizzards if possible, gummy worms, paper, edible brown dough (more specific list given in the pdf)
