Digestion and Using Food
Guided Rd. Level V
Interest Level 3-12
You eat food every day. In fact, every living organism can't live without it. Digestion is a complex, sometimes gross, process by which our bodies turn a meal into energy. From humans to birds and herbivores to decomposers, find out what happens after food enters the body in this dynamic science book. You'll be amazed to learn that you really are what you eat.
Fifth grade readers will learn about the digestive systems of humans and animals, photosynthesis, organ structure and function, and more through this high-interest informational text filled with vibrant photographs. Aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards, a hands-on Think Like a Scientist lab activity and a Your Turn page at the end of the book support STEM education and provide young scientists with an opportunity to apply what they've learned in the text. Helpful diagrams and text features, such as a glossary and index, are also included to reinforce content-area literacy and improve close reading.
