The Digestive Process Organs
1. the first organ of the digestive tract/ movement= chewing
2. When a person swallows, food pushes into this /the muscular tube that carries food and liquids from the mouth to the stomach.
3. stores swallowed food and liquid, mixes the food and liquid with digestive juice it produces, and slowly empties its contents, called chyme, into the small intestine.
4. mix food with digestive juices from the pancreas, liver, and intestine and push the mixture forward to further digestion. The walls of this organ absorb the digested nutrients into the bloodstream. The blood delivers the nutrients to the rest of the body.
5. absorbs water and any remaining nutrients and changes the waste from a liquid into a stool (poop if you will). The rectum stores stool until it pushes stool out of the body during a bowel movement.
6. produces a juice containing several enzymes that break down carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in food. This organ delivers digestive juice to the small intestine through small tubes called ducts. 7.
