(1.4)Human Systems- Digestive System
Recall – 11 Human Systems
Human Digestive System
The body’s digestive system completes four tasks:
• Ingestion: Food is taken into the body.
• Once food in placed into the mouth digestion begins.
• Digestion: Food is physically broken down into nutrients (through dissolving and breaking into smaller bits) and also broken down chemically (through chemical reactions).
• During absorption, nutrients diffuse or are moved into the blood and carried to the cells.
• Energy from these nutrients is made available to cells through cellular respiration.
• Elimination: Solid waste passes from the digestive system out of the body.
Organs of the Digestive System

Organ System Teaming
• Organ systems working together carry out important tasks in the body.
• Most tasks in the body need the support of two or more organ systems working together.
Can you identify some activities and the organ systems that work together to complete them?
• Recall cellular respiration from last year?
• glucose + oxygen carbon dioxide + water
• It’s how the body gets its energy requirements.
• Glucose from the digestive system• Oxygen from the respiratory system
• Circulatory system transports glucose and oxygen to cells.
• Now cells have what they need for cellular respiration.
