Body Works – Lung Experiment

Last week we were learning about the lungs and how they work. We did an experiment to find out how they work.

We used paper bags as the lungs and drew red felt pen in the shape of lungs on to the bag. Next we put straws in to the paper bag to act as the wind pipe. Then we blew into the straws to inflate them with air.  Later, we tested them to see if they worked.   We found that some of them worked and some didn’t because they had a puncture.

We had los of fun learning about and making the lungs.
