What do we know about the coronavirus? How does it affect our lungs?

ART & DESIGN
Time for a challenge! Can you design your own set of working lungs??
You will need – straws, three balloons, a clear plastic bottle (e.g. empty juice bottle), cellotape and scissors. Take pictures of your models and share them with me via Teams, Mail or Twitter.
Here are some links to help you with the design… https://schoolscienceexperiments.com/simple-science-experiments-for-class-6-lungs-model/ or https://www.science-scom/breathing-making-a-fake-lung/)
You may now want to use your own working lungs to create some art work using blow painting or bubble painting – https://artful-kids.com/2012/02/02/paint-with-bubbles-3-ways/

Daniel from our class has completed the challenge – here is his design…
Finally let’s finish with a fun poem. Do you have a favourite poem?
