How Lungs Work - A Video and an App

How do the lungs work? is a new TED-Ed video lesson. The lesson is appropriate for students in grades seven through nine. Through the video students can learn about the structures and functions of human lungs. Like all TED-Ed lessons the video is followed by a short series of multiple choice an short answer questions.


Applications for Education
After watching the TED-Ed lesson about lungs, your students can learn more through the Living Lungs iPad app. Living Lung is a free iPad app from iSO-Form Medical. The app provides an interactive 3D model of human lungs. Users of the app can speed up or slow down the respiratory rate of the model. This free educational iPad app also allows users to add or remove labeled layers of the respiratory system. And as you might expect you can zoom in, zoom out, and rotate the model on your iPad.
