Once it has been cleaned by the liver it goes to the large intestine which seperates the water and waste is formed.
2. The movement of blood in your heart and body is called circulation (circulatory system).

Mission 4: explain the process of the digestive system.
It starts of the process of your mouth. When you take a bite of your food it would break it down into little piecies. Then it would take it down the esophgus which is 30meters long . When it is all down it would go into your stomach whith an asid called enziens. It would take it to your small intestine which would then send it to your large intestine. Then when it is all down it would go down to yoiur rectum.

1.The circulation System.
2.It is the sound of the vales opening.
3.The kidneys remove the waste out of your blood.

1 in 5
1/100 ×5= 20
1/4=0.25,25%,25
0.25=1/4 25×4=100
1/3=33.3 100÷3=33.3 £33.33
0.5=50%,5, 1/2

14. Ryan Chand

The food goes into the mouth and then goes into the esophagus then travels douwn into the stomach. The esophagus is a soft tube that run down to the stomach.
The stomach is an organ, which holds acid. Food and acid then mixes into a liquid called:chyme.
Then after it is made into acid it goes into the small intestine and then into the large intestine. The large intestine helps it to make it softer and easier .
After wards it goes up into the gall blader,which filters it. Finally it reaches the pancrease and down into the rectom.

15. Ryan Chand

Bruna prefered Berlin because there was five floor (counting the cell and the small room upstairs) and he could swing on the banester.
Bruno saw the Concentration Camp outside his new home.
Maria defends father because Bruno’s father helped Maria’s parents. On the tire swing Bruno hurt himself and Pavel camee to help him.

Bruno missed his friends and his old house.

Bruno saw a concentration camp.

Maria defended farther to remind Bruno how selfish he was being.

I think it’s important to speak your mind so you’re emotions don’t come out like crying or anger.

Mission 4:

The digestive system.
When you chew your food,you food that’s mashed and crushed by your teeth the travels down a long 30 meter tube called the esouphogus . After a journey down the esopogus it then enters you stomach with contains stomach acids a enzines which sends it to the small intestines The small intestines create a liquid called bile which is then transferred to the liver. The liver removes harmful substances from the blood. And keeps the good substances for example like carbohydrates and nutrients. It then enters the large intestines wich throws out the waste.

It is called the circulatory system.

The sound of the heart is from the heart vales opening.

The kidneys removes waste from the blood.

18. Anthony Dacosta-Reid

Mission 4 explain the pro cess of the digestive system.
The start of the process – the mouth: The digestive process begins in the mouth. Food is partly broken down by the process of chewing and by the chemical action of salivary enzymes (these enzymes are produced by the salivary glands and break down starches into smaller molecules).

On the way to the stomach: the esophagus – After being chewed and swallowed, the food enters the esophagus. The esophagus is a long tube that runs from the mouth to the stomach. It uses rhythmic, wave-like muscle movements (called peristalsis) to force food from the throat into the stomach. This muscle movement gives us the ability to eat or drink even when we’re upside-down.

In the stomach – The stomach is a large, sack-like organ that churns the food and bathes it in a very strong acid. Food in the stomach that is partly digested and mixed with stomach acids is called chyme.

In the small intestine – After being in the stomach, food enters the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. It then enters the jejunum and then the ileum (the final part of the small intestine). In the small intestine, bile (produced in the liver and stored in the gall bladder), pancreatic enzymes, and other digestive enzymes produced by the inner wall of the small intestine help in the breakdown of food.

In the large intestine – After passing through the small intestine, food passes into the large intestine. In the large intestine, some of the water and electrolytes (chemicals like sodium) are removed from the food. Many microbes (bacteria like Bacteroides), in the large intestine help in the digestion process. The first part of the large intestine is called the cecum (the appendix is connected to the cecum). Food then travels upward in the ascending colon. The food travels across the abdomen in the transverse colon, goes back down the other side of the body in the descending colon, and then through the sigmoid colon.

The end of the process – Solid waste is then stored in the rectum until it is excreted via the anus.

Q2.
The movement of the blood through the heart and around the body is called circulation.

Q3.
The beating sound your heart makes comes from the valves closing.

Q4.
The kidneys remove waste from the blood.
