First some review exercises

1. Use this interactive link to review the parts of the human gas exchange system.
While you work your way through it define the following terms; ventilation,

2. The following links take you to some drag and drop labeling activities. Complete
the activities to check your understanding. Make text boxes to appropriately label
the diagrams.

the diagram on the website. Esophagus will not be labeled below)

#5. Respiratory Systems

another name for trachea
