Check out these 12 lessons on air and the atmosphere, exploring air quality and how it can impact living things. There are plenty of hands-on activities, teaching guides, and videos to help making this unit come alive!
Students investigate how pollution affects lung health. In this pollution and lung health lesson plan, students build lung models from a soda bottle and balloons, and then discuss how the emissions from fossil fuels can adversely affect...
Rochester Institute of Technology
She had a terribly busy day converting oxygen into carbon dioxide; now she just needs a moment to breathe. In the activity, scholars review the function of the respiratory system and discuss bioengineering's role in medicine/health and...
Take a breather while your class takes in this information on the respiratory system. The roles of the lungs, diaphragm, bronchioles, and alveoli, are explained by a casual radio announcer as listeners call in to ask questions. The...
The oxygen needed by our bodies to burn during respiration of glucose is obtained by ventilation. The anatomical structures involved in gaseous exchange are drawn and labeled. The explanations are excellent for a review, or for a student...
Life science learners construct lung-o-meters from gallon-sized milk jugs and then measure their lung capacities. For older students, have them graph the vital lung capacities of each person in the class. Cross-curricular pieces are...
Students investigate the lungs and the effects of smoking upon them. They conduct research with the help of using multiple resources. The information is used in order to create the context of models made from clay of healthy and diseased...
The plan is to have adolescents work in groups to reserach the effects of smoking cigarettes on the lungs. Once they have collected information, they create a presentation to share with the rest of the class. This is part health lesson...
With a partner, youngsters measure their pulse and breathing rates, both at rest and after running in place for a minute. While this activity is not novel, the lesson plan includes a large-scale classroom graphing activity and other...
With the thousands of tasks our brain consciously performs on a daily basis, it's amazing that breathing isn't one of them. Learn how human bodies are able to automatically control the exchange of gas that keeps us alive with this short...
Take a deep breath and have your class construct working models of a lung! Using 500ml plastic bottles as the chest cavity, and balloons for the lung and the diaphragm, learners work in groups to make a model. The models help them to...
Third graders examine and identify the effects smoking has on the lungs. They view and discuss pictures of a smoker's lung and a healthy lung, and read and discuss an informational handout. Students then participate in an aerobic...
Young scholars explore tobacco smoking and the impact it has on society. In this health lesson students complete several experiments on smoking and lung cancer.
Fifth graders examine the function of the lungs and create a model of the lungs. Using a plastic cup, drinking straw, plastic bag, small balloon, and a rubber band, they follow step-by-step directions to construct simulated lungs. ...
Respiratory systems are different in worms, fish, and human lungs, and each are explained by Paul Andersen with his fabulous SMART Board. How are these respiratory systems similar? Keeping breathing surfaces moist is essential in all...
This plan has a PowerPoint, and two handouts attached. The concept is to clarify the structure and function of our respiratory system. Your class will like the activity with balloons that demonstrates lung capacity and the model of the...
Students name the main components of the respiratory system. They write a reaction that contains complete sentences, and uses proper spelling and grammar, after viewing a video. Students define the following terms: lungs, respiration,...
Despite slightly older animation, this fascinating video shows the path each red blood cell takes as it carries oxygen throughout the body. From the first pump of the heart pushing red blood cells to the lungs to pick up oxygen to the...
In this lung capacity worksheet, students use straws, funneling, liquids, tubing, and more to test their lung capacity. Students follow 14 sets of directions and analyze their data.
Students study how lungs and a diaphragm work to make them breathe. In this pollution lesson students build a lung model and learn three things they can do to protect themselves from the effects of fossil fuels.
Sixth graders explore measuring lung capacity. In this respiratory system lesson, 6th graders conduct an experiment on their fellow class mates that measures how much air capacity their lungs have. Students record and graph the data...
Students create a model of the lungs and diaphragm. For this breathing lesson, students create a model out of a plastic bottle and balloons. They see how the diaphragm helps to fill the lungs with air.
Students explore one's lung capacity, the human body, displacing volume of water with volume of air and spirometer use. Using simple math, students figure out their lung capacity by breathing into a bottle filled with water and...
Students illustrate the chronic lung conditions associated with smoking and write a persuasive argument against smoking. In this lung disease lesson plan, students use straws and balloons to illustrate the problems created by smoking....
