Our Science topic this half term is 'Staying Alive'. Today we measured our lung capacity: using a 5 litre water bottle and pipe, we filled our lungs full of air and blew out, using water displacement to work out in cm3 how much air we could hold in our lungs.
It was fun, but very wet!! We discovered that Becky had the largest lung capacity - 19cm3 and Frankie had the smallest - 7cm3. The average lung capacity was 11cm3.
