Respiratory System

Page history last edited by Mallory Burton 10 years, 3 months ago

BC Grade 5 Science IRP:

  • describe the basic structure and functions of the human respiratory, digestive, circulatory, skeoletal, muscular, and nervous systems
  • explain how the different body systems are interconnected


Although the reading level of this webquest is likely too difficult for students, the idea of forming role-playing teams to address a respiratory illness is a great concept for organizing a unit on the Respiratory System.
