Pre/Post-Test Answer Key Grades 4-6

Asthma affects the airways in the lungs which are part of the respiratory system.

Four things that can make asthma worse are exercise, pollen, animals, and colds, and cold air.

When a person is having an asthma episode, I might see signs and symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath.

If I think I might have asthma, I can get help from people like parent, school nurse and doctor (other trusted adult, teacher).

I can help my friend deal with his/her asthma by not teasing or including him in activities (reminding him to take medicine, helping him stay away from things that make his asthma worse).
