The lungs and our respiratory system

We have had lots of fun learning all about the lungs. We have learned the parts of our respiratory system and what each part does. It was even quite tricky trying to say the word ‘diaphragm’ when it sounds like ‘diagram’. We learned all about how our body reacts when we breathe in (inhalation) and we we breathe out (exhalation).

Last Friday, we made lungs using plastic bottles, balloons, elastic bands, blu tac and cellotape. We came up with incredible results and it was cool to see the process in action. Some of us made small mistakes, but as scientists had to figure out how to correct these mistakes and get the process working. We even got to visit some classes to show our work. How cool.

Check out our results!
