The text for this is definitely a 4 star rating Approachable, factual, and interesting, it gives a complete introduction to the digestive system on an elementary student level 2nd grade and up could read it on their own, but even some first graders will enjoy hearing the text if they can t read it on their own yet Photographs are solid, but suffer a touch from age we can get better photography these days.
Succinct, clear, and thorough enough for middle grade readers Photos are good and well placed.
This is kind of aadvanced book for kids, but is full of information In my classroom, I will let theadvanced readers use this book when we are doing informational reading and writing This is a great book to get facts from and learn all about the parts in your body and digestive system The students in my second grade placement love this book, especially the boys and a few of the girls.
The title and cover alone captured my attention immediately Simon s actual photographs bring the body parts to life as the text kindly and factually explains the part s function I would use this information book for grades above 4th as I think students under 4th grade might not appreciate or hold much interest in the topic Students who are learning about the human body and or adults interested in broadening their knowledge will eat this book up I sure did
This book explains each part of the gut or the digestive system in the human body It begins in the mouth and works its way through the esophagus, stomach, colon, intestines, etc It describes the knowledge of each part scientifically, but to where it s not too sciencey for students to not be able to understand This book, in my opinion, describes in great detail the processes of the digestive tract so that students can understand, but at a high enough level that it still pushes them to grow and learn The pictures in the book are life like, which some people might find gross, but I think it s important to teach students how things actually look This book would be a great addition to a classroom for probably 4 6th graders It would be phenomenal addition to a Science teacher s classroom because they could use the book as an introduction for their lesson of the human body The book is a little lengthy, but the teacher could easily break up the digestive tract and read and explain a few pages at a time.
This is an awesome book about the digestive system for children Simon explains the digestive process from start to finish using correct scientific vocabulary such as peristalsis and villi , but writing in such a smooth, simple way that it s easy for kids to understand The pictures are mostly photographs and x rays although I have no idea what that esophagus picture is showing the inside of the esophagus The outside of it in the body of a preserved cadaver No clue The book uses large type throughout, made easily readable with black text on a white background and vice versa Each two page spread includes one page of text and one image Has some emphasis at the end that we are literally made out of the things that we eat I would probably give it five stars if I liked the digestive system , but let s face it it s gross.
