Open wide, lets take a look inside! We're on a voyage of discovery to look around the inside of the human body. do you have a toothy smile or a winning grin? Test the effects of sugary drinks on your pearly whites. Follow a tasty morsel as it makes it's way through the digestive system, helped by some mouth watering saliva. Mmmmm! Not forgetting good hygiene at both ends! Write an information leaflet on the importance of looking after your teeth.


It's time to take a walk on the wild side! find out who's coming to visit...Is it a bug-munching lizard or an eagle-eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it?

Learn about creepy crocs and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug and the voracious venus flr trap.

Feeling peckish? Let's jump aboard the food chain!
