About This Quiz & Worksheet

This quiz/worksheet combo is designed to help you assess your understanding of the anatomy of the lungs and the function of the bronchioles within these structures. You will need to have a basic understanding of the respiratory system in order to pass the quiz.

Quiz and Worksheet Goals

In these assessments you'll be tested on:

  • The function of the bronchioles
  • How antigens are removed from the bronchi and bronchioles
  • Gases removed from the blood by the respiratory system
  • What happens during the act of breathing
  • Features of the respiratory system that allow for a fast rate of gas exchange

Skills Practiced

  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information regarding activity in the lungs and interpret it correctly
  • Defining key concepts - ensure that you can accurately define main phrases, such as bronchioles and bronchi
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding structures that make up the respiratory system
  • Knowledge application - use your knowledge to answer questions about how oxygen reaches the blood and waste is removed from the blood through the respiratory system
