The Respiratory System

Muscular movement would not be possible without the tremendous amount of energy in the form of ATP produced by the mitochondria. Cellular respiration itself would not be possible without oxygen. This unit covers each of the structures responsible for taking in and deliverying oxygen into the blood, then removing the waste carbon dioxide that is produced as a result of cellular respiration.


Respiratory System Lecture Powerpoint

View Lecture
Respiratory System Powerpoint lecture.

Purpose: This lecture takes students through the pathway of respiration, beginning with inspiration through the nasal cavity, travelling through the larynx and trachea, and finally ending at the alveoli within the lungs. Other forms of air movement, such as sneezing are covered, in addition to some respiratory system disorders such as cystic fibrosis and pneumothorax.

Essential Concepts: Inspiration, expiration, nasal cavity, larynx, pharynx, trachea, bronchi, alveoli, lungs, diaphragm, intercostals, oxygen, carbon dioxide, respiratory system disorders.


Respiratory System Student Notes Outline

View Worksheet
Respiratory system student notes outline.

Purpose: Taking efficient notes can be a big challenge for many students, especially when working from a Powerpoint lecture. This outline gives students a means to take notes that guides them toward important concepts and avoids the pitfalls of writing word-for-word or simply not taking notes at all. The outline lays out each of the key concepts, ideas, and blank diagrams that students are expected to learn. They fill in the missing details as the lecture proceeds.

Essential Concepts: Inspiration, expiration, nasal cavity, larynx, pharynx, trachea, bronchi, alveoli, lungs, diaphragm, intercostals, oxygen, carbon dioxide, respiratory system disorders.


Pathway of Breathing Flow Chart Activity

View Worksheet
Pathway of Breathing Flowchart Activity.

Purpose: One of the most important concepts for students learning the respiratory system is to learn the sequence of tissues, structures, and organs that oxygen (and carbon dioxide) pass through. This activity has students create a flow chart that outlines this sequence and describes any changes that occurs to the composition of the air itself.

Essential Concepts: Inspiration, expiration, nasal cavity, larynx, pharynx, trachea, bronchi, alveoli, lungs, diaphragm, intercostals, oxygen, carbon dioxide.


Respiratory System Study Guide

Respiratory System Study Guide.

Purpose: This study guide is a condensed listing of the major vocabulary words from this chapter, along with a set of practice questions and diagrams similar to what might be on a written test. The questions and vocabulary are roughly written in the same order as they appear in the lecture.

Essential Concepts: Inspiration, expiration, nasal cavity, larynx, pharynx, trachea, bronchi, alveoli, lungs, diaphragm, intercostals, oxygen, carbon dioxide, respiratory system disorders.
