This pack includes a short PowerPoint on the respiratory system (what its functions are, and what the parts of the respiratory system are). It also includes a lab on the respiratory system where students make a model of a lung and examine how the lung takes in air. They then draw their model and answer analysis questions about it.
This is a great lab because it uses readily available materials.
clear plastic cups, balloons, straws, rubber band, clay.

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!
