Build a Blood Cell!
some kind of cooking oil
cranberry jelly or red gelatin
a dark button
about 10-12 grains of rice
Put all of the ingredients into the ziplock baggie and squish around to mix. The oil will separate and show blobs here and there. Those represent the white blood cells, the cranberry or gelatin is the blood, the button is the cell nucleus and the rice represents platelets.
Have the kids draw what they see and label all the parts.
Look up in the discovery website for a lesson on blood cells
to go with your experiment and you are all set. Be sure to remind
the kids that what you are looking representational and that a
true blood cell is thousands of times smaller in your body.
Do you have any suggestions, comments or additions to this web site? I'd love to hear from you AND your kids....just email me.
