Depending on the age of your child (or students), there are a few ways you can go about introducing them to the human respiratory system.
For very young kids, teach them simple concepts about their lungs.
Some things might include:
- we have two lungs
- the lungs are located in our chest
- our lungs are pinkish red and squishy
- we use our lungs to breathe
If you’re working with older kids who know the basics of the human lungs, a book like this one will help them learn more details of exactly how they work plus tons more about the human body!
1. Download and print two copies of the lung template.
2. Cut strips of gray, black, red and pink construction paper.
3. Cut the strips into small squares and set aside.
4. Color the lungs with the crayons.
5. Glue the small red and pink squares onto one set of lungs to represent healthy lungs.
6. Glue the small black and gray squares onto the other set of lungs to represent unhealthy lungs.
7. Glue the picture onto a piece of construction paper.
