The students used materials which were easily available at home like plastic bottle, a pair of angular straws and balloons, cello tape, and created a pair of lungs. This activity explained the process ofInhalation and exhalation which was well demonstrated through this hands-on activity, which provided an experiential learning set-up, to the young minds.
