In order for us to get nutrition we need to break down _________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ II. Digestive System Overview a. There are four parts to digestion i. __________- taking in food ii. ___________- mechanical and chemical breakdown of food so that it can be absorbed by the cells iii. ______________: cells lining the digestive tract take up (absorb) small nutrient molecules iv. ________________: undigested material passes out of the digestive tract III. There are two ways digestion breaks up the food a. Mechanical digestion – ______________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________ b.
