We all know that school entails more than just reading and writing. That implies practicals and experiments are also included. Also, science projects are extremely common when it comes to science topics. So do you want to learn how to make a lungs model for a science project?
Now Is it true that you’re having difficulty helping your child with their science model? If that’s the case, we’ve created a step-by-step instruction for a lung model that’s quite common in classrooms.
Additionally, making a lung model is a wonderful method to learn more about the respiratory system and how the lungs work. The lungs are respiratory organs that are essential for breathing and the acquisition of life-giving oxygen.
Creating your lung model can benefit your kid’s understanding of how the lungs operate.
To make a lung model you will need all these materials:
- 3 Balloons
- 2 Straws
- Plastic bottle
Steps To Make A Lungs Model For Science Project
Now that you have the required materials, let’s get started on making a lung model. If you follow the directions to the point, making your lung model will be a piece of cake:
Step 1: Collect all the materials.
Gather the materials
Step 2: Cut 2 Balloons from the top as shown in the picture.
Cut the neck off
Step 3: Now, take one of the straws and cut it in half. After that, attach one balloon to each half of the straw. Close it off with tape. These are going to be your lungs.
Attach the straws
Step 4: Make a 2-inch cut on one end of the second straw to divide it in half.
Divide the straw
Step 5: To separate the straw into four pieces, turn it over and cut two 2″ slices on the other end.
Slit in four pieces
Step 6: One “lung” should be taped on either side of the two-way split straw.
Attach the balloons
Step 7: Remove the bottom of the bottle and cut it off.
Cut the bottle
Step 8: Open the bottle cap and drill a hole large enough for a straw to fit through.
Drill a hole
Step 9: Insert your “lungs” inside the bottle with the balloons at the center. Then, through the hole in the cap, insert the four-way split end of the straw. Replace the cap on the bottle.
Insert the balloons
Step 10: Tape the split ends.
Make it secure
Step 11: Trim the last balloon’s head off and wrap it over the bottle’s bottom.
Cover the bottom
Step 12: To see a simulation of how lungs work, pull on the bottom balloon. And that’s how your project is ready to go.
To make your lung model ideal, keep the following points in mind:
- Handle tools with caution, such as scissors.
- Tape neatly otherwise your project will appear clumsy.
- Always take precise measurements.
- Before using the balloons, make sure they aren’t damaged.
Now is the time to relax and work on your science project. Try these basic instructions to learn how to make a lungs model for a science project. So go ahead and take a chance.
