  • Hi, I am James the oxygen molecule. I am here to tell you about my adventures through the human body. I was on a table with my friends,  pizza, salad, and pepperoni 
  • When Joe started eating pizza, salad, and pepperoni. I was sucked in too!!! BYE!! (And the journey began)

  • I was in a dark tunnel with no lights called the trachea. All I could hear were other oxygen molecules getting sucked in as well. I decided to venture further into the tunnels. 
  • I had been traveling through the bronchi tubes and bronchioles for hours (milliseconds in human time) when I came across light! It was really dim, but it was bright enough to let me see. I went to it and diffused through the walls to be picked up by the bloodstream, while others exited as carbon dioxide.
  • Meanwhile... pizza, pepperoni, and salad were being chewed in the mouth. This is called mechanical digestion. Pizza's crust however was being chemically digested by amylase, one of the chemicals in saliva. Amylase breaks carbs into glucose. Next, they went through the esophagus into the stomach.

  • Inside the stomach, muscles contracted and expanded to break the food down into chyme. Pepperoni was broken down into amino acids by gastric juices. They stayed there for hours until they were pushed through the pyloric sphincter.
