Im glad to hear that. Who are absent Nobody is absent today!


Very good!

B. Preparatory Activities:

1. Review of the past Lesson

Our topic yesterday was about the
What was our topic yesterday? nutrients for energy

The three nutrients are

Thats right! What are these nutrients? Carbohydrates, Fats, and Proteins

The foods rich in Carbohydrates are

What are the examples of foods rich in beets, sugarcane, cereals, rice, bread,
Carbohydrates? and potato.

The foods rich in Fats are meat,

Very good! How about foods rich in butter, cheese, dark chocolate,
Fats? avocado and margarine.

The foods rich in Proteins are

Thats right! What are examples of chicken, fish, eggs, beans and nuts.
Protein-rich foods?

Very good! Since all of you already

mastered our topic yesterday, lets us
proceed to our next lesson.

2. Motivation

Each of you will be given a chocolate. I Yes Maam

want you to eat and swallow it slowly

What do you think happen to chocolate The chocolate broken down into
when you ate it? small pieces.

Thats right! When you ate the chocolate, it

breaks down into pieces and will be
digested into the stomach.

So, what do you think is our topic today? Our topic today will be digestive
Thats right!

3. Presentation

Now let us watch a video clip about the

Digestive System. Take down notes for I Yes Maam.

Thats right! What process is involved Ingestion Maam.

when you put the food in your mouth?

What is ingestion? Ingestion is the process of the food

entering the mouth.

Yes. Digestion begins in the mouth Digestion is the process of breaking

of food along the digestive tract. What is
Chemical Digestion?

Very good! Chemical digestion is the

process where food is converted to
substances usable by the body. Substances
called enzymes speed up this process. Your

around your oral cavity so that all food can
be ground up. Food is now a wet and
become a bolus. Where do you think bolus
will go after the mouth?

Thats right! The bolus will push into the

pharynx with the aid of your tongue.
Tongue cannot push food all the way down
to the stomach. And the bolus is moved
further downward by rhythmic, muscular
contractions of the Pharynx, known as

What is esophagus? Esophagus is a long flexible-tube like

Digestive system. Did you understand?

2. Application
Using strips of Carolina students will
label each part of the Digestive System.

Expected Answers:

A. Mouth
B. Esophagus
C. Stomach
D. Small Intestine
E. Large Intestine
F. Anus

3. Generalization

What have you learned from our topic I have learned that major parts
today? involved in digestive system are
mouth, esophagus, stomach, small
intestine, large intestine and rectum.

Very good! What is the importance of Digestion is important because

Digestion? through it nutrients from the food we
eat can be absorbed into our body.

Pancreas - located below the

stomach. It produces a mix of
enzymes that together are called
pancreatic juice. This juice helps
neutralize the very acidic chyme when
it enters the small intestine and helps
digest proteins, fats
and carbohydrates.

Gall bladder - a pouch-shaped organ

that stores the bile produced by the
liver. It shares a vessel, called the
common bile duct, with the liver.
When bile is needed, it moves
through the common bile duct into
the first part of the small intestine,
the duodenum. It is here that the bile
breaks down fat.
