Measuring Your Breathing Frequency at RestAdd to list Details
In this activity about the brain and sleep (on page 138 of the PDF), learners measure their resting breathing rates. Learners will discover that breathing frequencies vary amongst individuals.
This is an activity about lung capacity. Learners will measure their own lung capacity using a homemade spirometer.
In this health activity, learners explore breathing, lungs and asthma. Learners test their lung capacity by blowing air into balloons.
Carbon Dioxide Removal
In this experiment using sprigs of Elodea, learners will observe a natural process that removes carbon dioxide (CO2) from Earth's atmosphere.
How Long Can You Hold Your Breath?Add to list Details
In this activity (on page 142 of the PDF), learners will compare breathing rates before and after hyperventilation to explore how reduced carbon dioxide levels in the blood lower the need to breathe.
In this physical activity, groups of learners act as blood cells traveling through the circulatory system.
Build a Lung
Most of the time, we don't have to think about breathing. In fact, you're probably breathing right now without thinking about it!
Raising the Level of Carbon Dioxide in Your BloodAdd to list Details
In this activity (on page 146 of the PDF), learners will explore the effects of increased carbon dioxide in the bloodstream.
Breathing MachineAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners work in teams to construct human lung models from small plastic beverage bottles and balloons.
In this environmental health activity, learners investigate their own vital lung capacities.
Introduction to the Scientific MethodAdd to list Details
In this activity (page 26 of the PDF), learners make observations, formulate hypotheses and design a controlled experiment, based on the reaction of carbon dioxide with calcium hydroxide.
Ins and Outs of Respiration: Determine your Respiratory RateAdd to list Details
Learners will determine their respiratory rate and explore the factors that affect breathing rate by filling out and using the Respiratory Chart provided in the lesson.
Circulatory System Skit: Act out the Flow of BloodAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners act out the flow of blood in the human body! A great way to get learners up and moving while learning about the circulatory system.
