Teacher's Guide: Asthma (PreK to 2)
Students explore asthma. In this respiratory system and asthma lesson plan, students identify the body parts related to the respiratory system and explain each part's function. Students construct a 3-D replica of the respiratory system using a variety of pastas.

Inhalation and Exhalation
High schoolers investigate inhalation and exhalation of the respiratory system. They construct a model of the respiratory system using balloons, straws, cups, and rubber bands. Then, they observe inhalation and exhalation and measure the volume of air exhaled.

Air, Air Everywhere! Lesson 2: Acid Rain
Middle school environmentalists record the pH of four different liquids, including two aerosol cleaning products. They liken the products to acid rain and speculate in writing which might affect the human respiratory system. Although this is a simple lesson, it is valuable in helping learners make connections between the products we use and the impacts on the environment and health.

Circulatory and Respiratory Systems
Eighth graders are able to write a paragraph describing each system based on the information retrieved in class. They trace a route from Holly Springs, MS to Greenwood using the maps that they were given. Students discuss the role of the circulatory system in the body and the role of the respiratory system is to provide oxygen to the body by breathing in air and getting rid of carbon dioxide.

Particles: Size Makes All the Difference
High schoolers plot particle sizes of common airborne materials on a log scale. They read an article on particle size and its relationship to the ability to pass through the lungs, into the bloodstream, and eventually into the cells of the body.
