Accessory organs of the digestive system include the teeth, tongue, salivary glands, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. To achieve the goal of providing energy and nutrients to the body, six major functions take place in the digestive system: IngestionSecretionMixing and movementDigestionAbsorptionExcretion Mouth Food begins its journey through the digestive system in the mouth, also known as the oral cavity. Inside the mouth are many accessory organs that aid in the digestion of food—the tongue, teeth, and salivary glands. Teeth. PharynxThe pharynx, or throat, is a funnel-shaped tube connected to the posterior end of the mouth. EsophagusThe esophagus is a muscular tube connecting the pharynx to the stomach that is part of the upper gastrointestinal tract. esophageal sphincter or cardiac sphincter. PancreasThe pancreas is a large gland located just inferior and posterior to the stomach. Swallowing.

Lesson Plans (ABC Science) Lesson Plans Making waves Make a cool wave animation and, in the process, learn about the ebb and flow of the surf. Taste illusion It is said first impressions matter, but are they always correct? Food, exercise and energy Students use nutrition information to calculate the number of teaspoons of fat and sugar in their favourite food and drinks. Flipping coins Flipping a coin one hundred times might sound mundane but it always produces truly astonishing results.

eequalsmcq - The Lab of Mister Q - Homeschool Science and other Education Resources Biodiversity and linguistic diversity Biodiversity and linguistic diversity Maintaining indigenous languages, conserving biodiversity While it is widely acknowledged that the degradation of the natural environment, in particular traditional habitats, entails a loss of cultural and linguistic diversity, new studies suggest that language loss, in its turn, has a negative impact on biodiversity conservation. There is a fundamental linkage between language and traditional knowledge (TK) related to biodiversity. Local and indigenous communities have elaborated complex classification systems for the natural world, reflecting a deep understanding of their local environment. This environmental knowledge is embedded in indigenous names, oral traditions and taxonomies, and can be lost when a community shifts to another language. ©DiscoveryTraditional fisherman in Guatemala.
