Select 3 organs and describe their importance in the digestive system.
Organ: Small Intestine

Explanation:
The small intestine is crucial in the digestive system because without it, the digestion would be incomplete. All the
nutrients from food will not be absorbed into the blood and organisms will be short of energy.

Organ: Stomach

Explanation:
Stomach is important to the digestive system as well because it allows us to store food and helps with the digestion of
food. If the stomach were removed, it’ll cause diarrhea and wont be able to eat large meals.

Organ: Salivary gland

Explanation:
The salivary gland is important in the digestive system because it helps soften food up and keeps the digestive system
moist. Without it, it will be hard to digest food.
Compare and contrast the chicken digestive system with
the human digestive system. Provide 2 similaries and 2
differences.
Similarities: Esophagus, Liver, Gall Bladder, Small Intestine

Differences: Stomach, Crop, Cloaca

The food are first stored in the crop before going into the
stomach (Proventriculus).

The cloaca is where the digestive, urinary and


reproductive system meets. This means the urine and
feces are excreted at the same time.
State the purpose of the digestive system.

The purpose of the digestive system is that it helps


breakdown food into small molecules, which are then
absorbed into the body.
