Task III – How Do We Breathe?

Spring's Breeze

Spring's Breeze

You’ve learned that doctors and veterinarians have similar jobs. They both have to study anatomy in college. But a veterinarian has to learn about the anatomy of more than one animal. Let’s take a look at one small, but important part of the human anatomy, the respiratory system.

Use books and the links below to learn about the respiratory system.

Use the information you’ve learned here to create a working model of the respiratory system to share with the class. You can do this at home using simple, common materials. It’s not necessary to buy anything.

As a class, decide on guidelines/rubric for expectations about what should be included in your model and presentation.
Be prepared to present your model.

Now, let's trot on over to Task IV.

The project described was supported by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
