The Stages of Digestion (animation that shows a piece of food being broken down by the digestive process):

Quick Animation of Peristalsis (Smooth Muscle contractions/relaxations to aid bolus down esophagus and chyme through the small intestines - notice how bolus and chyme are different words that refer to the same thing, so try to clarify that in your understanding):

Meiosis or Cell Division:

This video covers most of the terms needed to understand the reproductive system unit:

Quick Sheet Here: (I know this is long, but just go through this and find the key terms you need - and hopefully a visual aid has been provided to help you understand certain terms)

Good luck on your finals and hang in there! Keep up the good work!
