Primary 2 visit The Glasgow Science Centre

Glasgow Science Centre 250wAs part of our topic, 'Food, Glorious, Food', Primary 2 visited the Glasgow Science Centre to learn about digestion. We went to a workshop called 'Journey Through our Body' which explained how food travels through our body and how our digestive system works. After our lunch we explored the Science Mall which was very exciting. It was a brilliant day out enjoyed by all.

Here are some of the things that we learnt and our favourite bits from the day:
