Description
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 e-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 e-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.
