Circulation and Respiration: Vital Signs
What do your vital signs tell your doctor? An engaging hands-on lesson has your learners monitor their own lung capacity, blood pressure, and heart rate. They then connect the vital measures to the workings of the circulatory and...
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...
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...
Get ready to have some fun and make some noise! Your youngsters will love getting to scream as loud as they want, but they have to run at the same time that they are screaming. There are a couple of other ideas that you could use to...
How Big is a Breath?
Students demonstrate how to use math skills to measure their lung capacity. In this human biology lesson, students use a clear plastic container, measuring cup and rubber balloons to demonstrate how the lungs work. Students estimate the...
Catch your Breath
Learners measure lung capacity and explore factors that affect the amount of air the lungs can hold.
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 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...
Pupils study the function of lungs. In this lung function lesson, students complete an experiment using balloons to study the way lungs work. Pupils study a diagram of their lungs and make a hypothesis for their lung capacity experiment....
Students determine their lung capacity by completing a science experiment with a bottle of water. In this lung science lesson plan, students discuss the lungs' purpose. Students complete an experiment to determine their lung capacity...
In this health worksheet, students find the words that are related to the respiratory illness of asthma and the answers are found by clicking on the button at the bottom of the page.
Peak Flow Meter Exercise
Students investigate the concept of lung capacity. They use flow meters to measure the maximum capacity of themselves and others. The data is collected in order to make some conclusions concerning the mean of individual lung capacity....
