What a bloody day!
Classroom 8 made blood today! Studying the Human Body this month is the best! I wanted the children to understand the four key parts of the blood.
We then set about with a quick experiment, the aim of which was to help the children to visualize the four different parts: plasma (water colored yellow), red blood cells (cheerios colored red), white blood cells (mini marshmallows), and platelets (purple pipe cleaners).
It was a really easy experiment to do and the children loved it!
