2 Georgia Performance Standard S7L2 Students will describe the structure and functionof cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems.c. Explain the purpose of the major organsystems in the human body (i.e. digestion,respiration, reproduction, circulation,excretion, movement, control, andcoordination, and for protection fromdisease.)
3 Essential QuestionsWhat digestive processes occur in the small intestine, and how are other digestive organs involved?What role does the large intestine play in digestion?
4 The Small Intestine Almost all chemical digestion and absorption of nutrients takes place in thesmall intestines.
5 The Small IntestineWhen fluid leaves the stomach, it goes to the small intestine. The small intestine is the part of the digestive system where most chemical digestion takes place.Chemicals from the small intestine and other nearby organs break down the rest of the food molecules in the small intestine.The lining of the small intestine is covered with millions of tiny bumps called villi. When digestion is finished, food molecules pass through the villi into the blood
6 The Small Intestine What takes place in the small intestine? Almost all chemicaldigestion and absorptionof nutrients takes place inthe small intestine.
7 The Small Intestine 2. List the three organs that produce the enzymes andsecretions used in the smallintestine.a. small intestineb. liverc. pancreas
8 The Liver 3. The largest organ inside the body, which is located in theupper right part of theabdomen, is the liver.
9 The Liver 4. A substance made by the liver that breaks up fat particles is calledbile.
10 The Gallbladder 5. What is the role of the gallbladder? gallbladder is tostore bile.
11 The Pancreas 6. Enzymes produced by the pancreas help break down starches, proteins,and fats.
12 Absorption in the Small Intestine 7. The tiny finger- shapedstructures that cover theinner surface of the smallintestine are called villi.(singular villus)
13 Absorption in the Small Intestine 8. Nutrient moleculespass from the smallintestine into thebloodstreamthrough the villi.
14 The Large Intestine . As the material moves through the large intestine, water is absorbed into the blood stream.The remaining materialis readied for eliminationfrom the body.
15 The large IntestineAny material that is not absorbed in the small intestine moves on to the large intestine. The large intestine is the last organ in the digestive system.The main job of the large intestine is to remove water from the material that passes through itThe waste material that is left leaves the body through the anus. The anus is an opening to the outside of the body.
16 The large Intestine 1. The bacteria in the large intestine feed on the material passing through and make certainvitamins for the body.The short tube at the end of the large intestinewhere waste material is compressed iscalled the rectum.3. Circle the letter of the muscular opening through which wastes are removed from thebody.a. rectum b. anus c. pancreas

18 Essential QuestionsWhat digestive processes occur in the small intestine, and how are other digestive organs involved?The small intestine is where most chemical digestion takes place.Enzymes and secretions produces by the small intestines, the liver, and pancreas finish the chemical digestion of foods.
19 Essential Questions The role of the liver is to produce bile. Bile is a substance that breaks up fat particles.Bile flows from the liver into the gallbladder, the organ that stores the bile.The pancreas produce enzymes that flow into the small intestine and help break down starches, proteins, and fats.

21 Essential QuestionsWhat role does the large intestine play in digestion?The large intestine contains bacteria that feed on material passing through.As material move through the large intestine, water is absorbed into the blood stream. The remaining material is readied for elimination from the body.
