Title: Blow It Up!
Description: This activity focuses on measuring respiratory values. By measuring lung capacities and respiratory rates, the students will use the resulting data to first predict, then test their hypothesis. Various graphs can be charted from the results giving students the opportunity to practice graphing different types of graphs, as well as gleaning conclusions from the data analysis. 
Key Words: Science, math, online, activities, lungs, lung capacity, measure, respiratory rate 
Grade Level: 6th, 7th, 8th 
Subject: Science, Math 

Teacher's Request: I need an activity to teach students about lung capacities and respiratory rates.
