The Esophagus




Using a straw, we demonstrated how the esophagus works. I made a ball of paper small enough to fit into a straw and yet not so small as to easily slip through. The boys used their fingers to squeeze the straw, pushing the ball of paper through the tube. We talked about how our esophagus muscles do the same thing to push our food to the stomach.
