Lesson Title: Respiratory Systems Scavenger Hunt Timing: 44 minutes

Target Audience:
7th grade general science course

Objectives:
Students Will Be Able To:
• Use literacy skills to learn more about the respiratory system.
• Be guided through an investigation of respiratory concepts they are familiar with.
• Review current understandings of respiration.

The Teacher Will Be Able To:


• Assess student understanding.
• Provide students with a guided opportunity to learn through literacy.

Standards Assessed: New York State Standards for Middle School Science
Performance Indicator 1.2: Explain the functioning of the major human organ systems and their interactions.
1.2b Tissues, organs, and organ systems help to provide all cells with nutrients, oxygen,
and waste removal.
1.2dDuring respiration, cells use oxygen to release the energy stored in food. The respiratory system
supplies oxygen and removes carbon dioxide (gas exchange).

Misconception(s) Addressed: n/a

Lesson Plan

Aim: To review and understand the practical applications regarding respiration.

Physics Push-Up: Think-Pair-Share (4 minutes)


Students pair up to explain what they wrote about for homework and read the Science Fact of the Day out loud
to one another.

Activity: Scavenger Hunt (30 minutes)


Materials:
• Books listed in resources section.
• Copies of Respiration Scavenger Hunt Worksheet

Procedure:
Lab tables will receive some of the books listed in the resource section. They should complete the questions and
tasks listed on the worksheet.

Before handing out the worksheets, model what should happen. Pick a sample book, locate the question, and
describe to students how you would go about answering the prompt.

The teacher should circulate throughout the room asking students questions and clearing confusion.

Activity Summary: Ask a Friend (8 minutes)


Students should walk around the room to find peers who have the answers to sections their table did not
complete.

Homework: (2 minutes)
Distribute Homework #8, Worksheet 14-1

Exit Strategy:
Students pick up homework on their way out of the classroom.

Extension Activity: Free Write


Students should free write in their science notebooks about what they learned in the scavenger hunt.

Assessment:
Formative:
• Student responses on the worksheet
• Student conversations and comments
• Teacher floating throughout the room
