The Respiratory System – Simplified!
My students love having large-sized structures to work with and always tell me that it really helped them remember the organs. I looked for pre-made life-sized bodies with organs, but sadly only found things appropriate for elementary students. Definitely not detailed enough for Juniors and Seniors in high school, many of whom plan to pursue a career in the medical field! So, I decided that I should create LIFE-SIZED diagrams which I knew would focus on the important structures of the system but, at the same time, be RIGOROUS enough for my high school Anatomy students…
This is what I had drawn for my students to use for the Gallery Walk last year. This summer, I have improved upon the diagrams and added the diaphragm muscle.
These easy to interpret diagrams are drawn over 8 pages and are easily trimmed and taped together to create a large human body. Labels for the structures are also included in small print.
I drew this project with a lift-the-flap lung so students can see the bronchi and alveoli underneath.
This project is new in my TpT store! You can check it out here –> https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Anatomy-Practicals-Life-Sized-Respiratory-System-PROJECT-4595368
It is the eleventh (and final!) installment in my newest project called Anatomy Practicals! These will cover each body system and provide your students with life-sized diagrams as well as the important organs included… all rigorous enough for high school Anatomy students! I have also bundled these with instructions for the project that my students did for each system. Stay tuned for all systems to be posted!
