The Grade Fives have been learning about the respiratory system in Natural Sciences and were asked to make a model of a lung machine. They brought plastic bottles, straws, balloons and a rubber surgical glove. With the equipment and working collaboratively, the pupils designed and structured fantastic working models of lungs. With their models, they could identify the parts of the respiratory system and how they function.
