Explore

Elicit


Oxygen diffuses through lung tissue to get to your blood.

We can model that with something you can see.

Explore

SS1 - 4


Use the model to compare a hollow lung with one full of air spaces.

SS1 - 4


discuss

What did the model show you?

And what does that tell us about diffusion in lung tissue?

Explore


So alveoli give lungs a huge surface area for gas exchange…

...and their walls are really thin and surrounded by blood vessels.

Explain

9


So alveoli give lungs a huge surface area for gas exchange…

...which lets gases diffuse much faster between the air spaces and your blood.

Explain


These delicate tissues have to be protected from dirt and germs.
