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!

My PreK students are learning about their bodies and they don’t have any background knowledge about lungs. This activity will help in getting an understanding.

Thank you for this download - I will be using it this afternoon with my homeschooled children. We use Easy Peasy for Science but I always like to add a little something extra to help them remember the concept.
