Health Activities Project (HAP): Breathing Fitness Module.
Buller, Dave; And Others
Contained within this Health Activities Project (HAP) learning packet are activities for children in grades 5-8. Design of the activities centers around the idea that students can control their own health and safety. Within this module are teacher and student folios describing four activities which involve students in learning how to measure their breathing rates and then investigating the effects of breathing style, breath holding, and exercise on breath rate; how to monitor the recovery of their breath rates after exercise; how to measure and practice improving their breath control; and how to measure their maximum lung volumes and investigate the relationship between lung volume and height.
