An Active Lesson on Respiration

Overall rating 4 out of 54.1 (7 ratings)

Last updated 23 January 2014, created 11 August 2011, viewed 18,298

Students often struggle to make the connection between respiration as a process and as an equation. This lesson includes a number of activities which reinforce the idea of respiration as the process that occurs in cells and that is NOT the same as breathing!!!

Great lesson plan- used with low ability yr 10s- makes them realise that respiration is definitely NOT breathing. Thank you
