                    INTRODUCTION

This video is designed for use in grades 6 - 9 as an intro-
duction to the major ideas and concepts associated with
the human respiratory system, and for use in grades 10-
12 as review.

                PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

After viewing the video and participating in the lesson ac-
tivities, the students will be able to ...

 Describe the function and workings of the respiratory
system.

 Identify the main parts of the respiratory system.

 Describe how gas exchange takes place in the human
body.

 Recognize the importance of a healthy respiratory sys-
tem.

 Define key vocabulary terms associated with the respira-
tory system.

                SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
This video describes the human respiratory system. It in-
troduces key vocabulary related to understanding how the
respiratory system helps to provide the body with the abil-
ity to oxidize food and obtain energy for all the trillions of
living cells found within a human. Through the use of col-
orful computer graphics, 3D animation, and live-action
video, students are presented with the respiratory system.

               INSTRUCTIONAL NOTES

Before presenting this lesson to your students, we suggest
that you preview the video and review this guide and the
accompanying blackline master activities in order to famil-
iarize yourself with their content.

Duplicate any blackline masters you wish to distribute. If
you plan to use the Video Quiz, which immediately fol-
lows the video presentation, you may wish to distribute
Blackline Master 1, Video Quiz, before showing the video.

Blackline Master 5, Lung Capacity is an experiment for
which you will need the following supplies: large jugs, (such
as water bottles), 1,000 ml graduated cylinders, grease pen-
cils, water, tubing, soda straws, and large pans for inver-
sion of jugs. You may want to have these supplies and your
laboratory prepared before beginning this experiment.

As you review the materials presented in this guide, you
may find it necessary to make some changes, additions, or
deletions to meet the specific needs of your class. We en-
courage you to do so, for only by tailoring this program to
your class will they obtain the maximum instructional ben-
efits affored by the material.

It is also suggested that the video presentation take place
before the entire group under your supervision. The les-
son activities grow out of the context of the video; there-
fore, the presentation should be a common experience for
all students.

             INTRODUCING THE VIDEO

Ask students to take a deep breath and hold it for as long
as they can. After a couple of minutes, everyone will be
gasping for breath. Why couldn't we go for more than a
couple of minutes without air? We can go days without
food and water. Why can't we be without air for even a
couple of minutes? The video you will be watching today
will help to explain the importance of the respiratory sys-
tem which supplies our living bodies with the much-needed
oxygen found in air.

Present the video. The viewing time is 14 minutes for the
program and about 5 minutes for the Video Quiz.

       BLACKLINE MASTER DESCRIPTIONS

Most of the follow-up activities for this program are de-
signed for middle school grades. If you use this program
with an older audience, you will need to adapt the materi-
als appropriately.

Blackline Master 1, Video Quiz, is to be used at the end of
the video program. At the completion of the video, there is

this sheet to record their answers. Answers to the ques-
tions are provided in the Answer Key found on page 5.

Blackline Master 2, Vocabulary, is a collection of impor-
tant vocabulary words from the video. You may want to
distribute this sheet before viewing the video so students
can listen for definitions.

Blackline Master 3, Parts of the Respiratory System, con-
tains a diagram of the respiratory system. Students are to
label the various parts of the system with the terms in the
                              5
