Discovering the Body with Google Tours

In this lesson, students explore the Respiratory System using Google Tours. The teacher can guide the students through a tour together or the teacher can allow students to freely navigate and explore the system on their own or in small groups. After experiencing the Virtual Tour, students then go on to remix the project by extending it to include additional content about the Human "mammal" Respiratory System and by also comparing it to another class of animal. For example, students could choose to compare the human respiratory system with that of fish, amphibians, birds or vertebrates.
