The Breathtaking Respiratory System
You will discover:
• An elementary-level exploration of the human body’s respiratory system, focused on structures, function, diseases, and God’s efficient and effective designs
• Fast facts and important discoveries that help medical professionals understand the mechanisms of our lungs, sinus cavities, and diaphragm
• Find out why the common cold isn’t so common after all - hundreds of viruses cause over 1 billion cases of the “common’” cold each year!
With a loud piercing wail, most of us entered this world as a crying baby taking in our first big breath of air. Breathe in. Breathe out. You hardly notice your respiratory system at work every minute, day and night, awake or asleep, without fail. From our first breath to our last, breathing is truly essential to life. What powers the over 23,000 breaths each of us takes daily? Come on a captivating odyssey through the wind tunnels of the body and be prepared to be amazed!
Celebrate God’s incredible design of your body and its functionality. For example, at the top of your nasal cavity is a space the size of a postage stamp with around 10 million small receptor cells. Most people can distinguish over 10,000 different odors!

Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has two easy-to-manage lessons that combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building opportunities. Worksheets, quizzes, and tests are perforated and three-hole punched — materials are easy to tear out, hand out, grade, and store. Adjust the schedule and materials needed to best work within your educational program. Space is given for assignments dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. Adapt the days to your school schedule.
Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each section of the PLP. They should be encouraged to complete as many of the activities and projects as possible as well. Tests are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade. If used with younger students, they may be given the option of only choosing activities or projects of interest to them and taking open book tests.
Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. For example, the parent may opt for a M–W schedule rather than a M, W, F schedule. Each week listed has four to five days. Adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.
