EXPLORE THEME DETAILS
The plant and animal kingdom comprises all kinds of organisms. From the simplest unicellular creature, to the most complex multi-cellular creatures with highly developed organs. Apart from their universal reliance on oxygen, water and food for survival, these organisms perform some similar biological functions like respiration, reproduction and so on. The Respiratory and Transportation systems define some of the main features of what makes us “living” beings.
In this unique and thoroughly enjoyable Theme Workshop by ThinkTac, children will be exposed to some vital concepts in biology while making and undertaking a series of specially curated TACtivities that will allow them to understand some of our invisible and internal biological systems first-hand. The key functions plants perform to produce our food. How animals absorb oxygen from the atmosphere, transfer it to their bloodstream, and then use it at the cellular level to create energy with the help of food is in itself a fascinating story. Our body then also has to deal with a host of toxins that are generated in the process, as well as make sure that all our organs receive a constant supply of nutrients and oxygen. It is these very fine nuances of a biological system that makes the teaching of biology hands-on, using simple and affordable materials, an incredible challenge even for innovative teachers world over. However, in this carefully curated series of experiments, students will build a “respirometer”, measure the volume of their lungs, simulate the working of the heart by making a pump with valves, demonstrate how the diaphragm aids in breathing, test the composition of our exhaled breath and perform many more such vibrant exercises that will tickle the interests of most students.
Give your children some breathing space in exploring this topic, and they are bound to make heartfelt discoveries of their own!
