My Respiratory System Paragraph, By Angela Sunshine

The Respiratory System is a system that helps you breathe. The major parts are the nose, mouth, trachea, lungs, air sacs, bronchi, and diaphragm. One of the most important organs are the lungs. The lungs rest on the diaphragm and whenever you breathe in, the lungs expand and the diaphragm contracts. If you breathe out, it does the opposite. The diaphragm is where there is a gap between your lungs. The trachea is under your throat, and the lungs are covered behind your ribs that protect it. The Respiratory System helps you do one of the basic living needs - breathing.
