As an introduction to the “Geography of Pulmo Park”, students will explore the structure of the pulmonary system with an activity called “Landmarks”. After becoming acquainted with the structure of the pulmonary system, students will be further engaged by completing a self profile of their own pulmonary health called, “My Road Blocks”. This activity will allow students to explore the functions of the lungs and how the health of our lungs is affected by many interrelating factors. After assessing personal health risks related to their lungs, students will process out this activity through a student discourse of questioning called “Clearing My Road Blocks” which will expand and deepen thinking and allow for thoughtful reflection. This thoughtful reflection will be manifested in the writing of a narrative called “Fortunately, Unfortunately” where students describe the condition of their lungs and have the option to extend this activity in a creative collage of the lungs called Street Media.
