You should be masters of the heart by now, but just for review….what is the difference between an atrium and a ventricle? 5.

Draw a picture of a single lung below, and label the trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. 8. What do alveoli look like and what do they do? (draw one for extra credit) 9.
