Digestive System Analogies -
A Group Activity
1991 Woodrow Wilson Biology Institute
This exercise can be used as a quick group activity shen studying the human digestive system in order for the students to relate common kitchen items to the function of specific digestive organs.
In the left column you will see a list of some of the major organs of the digestive system. As a group, decide on which item or appliance that you would find in a kitchen would be the most analogous to the organ named. In the column marked Rationale, give the reasons your group chose this particular item. The class as a whole will then share the choices from each group.
