Science Fun- Alveloi, Bronchial Group and Gas Exchange

 We are having an amazing, productive week. I love it when things roll this way!
Above: The makings of a fabulous physiology session focusing on the respiratory system.

Below: Reconstruction of the bronchial group and alveloi. They are located inside the lung organ. 

You can click on any image to enlarge them.

 The large pink reconstruction shows large alevolar sac. Ironically the small pink lollies are called 'smokers.' I remember these from when I was a kid, they taste like aniseed but I am not sure how they got there name.
 The above photo shows airway tubes being affected by asthma and as it should look.
The photo below shows gas exchange taking place.

My son reconstructed the Goblet Cell, a specialised cell that discharges mucus, please check back soon to see the lesson :)

May your nest be blessed,
