The total amount of area that is exposed on the outside of an object Surface Area
To physically break down food into smaller particles (mainly by chewing) Mechanical Breakdown

Gradually taking in of a substance, for example the villi in the small intestine pull in the nutrients so that they can be transported by the blood Absorption
a chemical that helps us identify the presence of something (i.e. BTB changes color when exposed to CO2.) Indicator
Breaks down food into the nutrients to be absorbed into the blood. Digestive System
a group of organs working together for a specific function/job Organ System
The tiny parts of food that the body uses to survive and grow. Nutrients
Body system responsible for breathing--Oxygen in and Carbon Dioxide out Respiratory System
also called the cardiovascular system, moves the blood around the body Circulatory system
