The biggest function of digestion is breaking up food into nutrients that the body can easily digest and put to good use. There are several types of digestive enzymes that assist with this process, all of which serve different functions. In this activity, students will create diagrams of the digestive enzymes and macronutrients they break down. Students have the opportunity to get creative with this project, or can use the shapes and colors to represent different enzymes.
To challenge your more advanced students, have them write a summary of the function of each nutrient in the description box.
