Lungs

Discussion in 'Primary' started by uk2020, Jan 14, 2012.

  1. Hi all,
    Does anyone know or have any ideas on how to start off teaching Y6 children about the lungs? Would like to try an experiment. Or, could anyone suggest any activities to do with the lungs?
    Thanks,

  3. A quick web search will give you loads of experiment for kids re: lungs. One common one is to make a working model of a set of lungs with balloons and plastic bottle.

    If you can get hold of a spirometer you could have children test their lung capacity. Or perhaps just see who can inflate a balloon the most with a single breath? Can they think of their own experiments to develop? Record their respiration rates at rest, after exercise? What are the functions of the lungs, how do they work, how are they related to the rest of of the cardio pulmonary system?
    A few simple observations and experiments.
