This resource contains an introductory presentation on the lungs and breathing as well as two interactive crosswords – one each on digestive and respiratory processes. It may be important to note that words in the crosswords use British spellings. All of the materials allow students to self-check their work, although there are no hints or key if students are unable to figure out an answer. These resources could easily be used at the late elementary / middle school level and above. This resource was created using the lodeStar Presenter and the easiest way to access the files is to press "start" on the Curriki resource rather than downloading the files. (Although lodeStar is a PC-only program, its output can be played in any environment that supports Macromedia Flash.)
