We designed an interactive activity to teach participants about the way our bodies digest and separate food into different groups. In our activity they had to digest 20 ‘food cubes’ in two teams with the winning team having all their cubes turned to waste first. (The food cubes are green on one side and brown when turned inside out...) Each student had a pair of teeth gloves to ‘break down the three food groups within the cubes with some ‘enzyme scissors’. The activity went well with the kids going crazy trying to beat one another to separate the sausage, cheese and sweets into different categories.
