Class Experience

Students will be able to label the basic parts of the respiratory system. They will understand and be able to explain the mechanism which allows us to breathe, such as the basic principles behind the exchange of gas between the alveoli and capillaries. The student will link this new knowledge to understanding the importance of trees to life and our planet. 
I have a B.Sc (Honors) in Medical Sciences. I am an experienced science teacher. I encourage students to observe and make direct observation, and through questioning and inquiry, understand how and why things work.
Students will build the model during class and might have to complete it for homework. After the first session, they will be assigned a quiz on the site.
 2 files available upon enrollment
