I like to use this lab as an introduction to the respiratory system. It

is an engagement activity, and helps clear up a lot of misconceptions about what happens when we breathe. This lab provides great background and a common starting point to build on with more details about the respiratory system. It could also be a good demo, lab at the end of a unit, or even a station if it is already assembled and students use the lung model and answer questions about it.

This was one of my most popular labs with my students last year!

Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells. Emphasis is on the conceptual understanding that cells form tissues and tissues form organs specialized for particular body functions. Examples could include the interaction of subsystems within a system and the normal functioning of those systems. Assessment does not include the mechanism of one body system independent of others. Assessment is limited to the circulatory, excretory, digestive, respiratory, muscular, and nervous systems.
Compare and contrast findings presented in a text to those from other sources (including their own experiments), noting when the findings support or contradict previous explanations or accounts.
