HUMAN RESPIRATORY SYSTEM LESSON PLAN

 

Materials

  • Sentence strips with Daily Science Question and facts about the Respiratory System.
  • Respiratory system visual aid
  • Study Notes worksheet
  • Venn Diagram worksheet
  • Paper doll outline
  • Glue, scissors
  • Colored construction paper
  • Yarn, beans, macaroni noodles, sponges, straws, cotton balls, etc.
  • Small balloons
  • Coloring utensils


Instructional Strategies

1.         The student will begin the class by copying the Daily Science Question that has been displayed into their science journals.  The students will answer the question to the best of their ability.  After approximately 5 minutes, the teacher will invite students to share their answers.  The teacher will share the correct answer.

2.         The teacher will introduce the Respiratory system and display a visual aid of the Respiratory system.

3.         The teacher will begin the lesson by taking a balloon and blowing it up.  The teacher will ask the class if they have an idea what organ might be similar to the balloon and the way it was inflated.  The students should arrive at the answer:  the lungs.  The teacher will present information on the Respiratory system.  The students will complete the Study Notes.  The information that the teacher should include is:

  • The organs that work together in the Respiratory system are:  the lungs, the nose, the trachea, the bronchi
  • Everybody has a set of two lungs
  • The lungs are similar to balloons
  • When we breathe in our lungs fill with air
  • When we breathe out, we are breathing out carbon dioxide
  • Our lungs work together with our heart to carry oxygen all over our body
  • The air first enters our body through the nose
  • The trachea is a tube that allows the air to go to the lungs

4.         The teacher will discuss the effects that smoking has on the lungs.  The students will brainstorm additional areas of the body smoking can effect .

5.         The student will complete the paper doll/system picture.  The teacher may want to add small balloons to the available supplies to depict the lungs.


Instructional Considerations

This grade class is made up of students possessing a variety of learning styles and ability levels.  This lesson plan has been designed to accommodate kinesthetic and visual learners by incorporating active learning strategies and visual aids.


Student Practice

The student will compare and contrast the Respiratory system and the Circulatory system using the Venn diagram worksheet.


Closure

The students will work in their cooperative groups to complete the design of their assigned “organs” in order to ready them for lamination.
