A series of diagrams and photographs is a vivid tool for delivering a lesson about blood vessels. Each slide has notes for the lecturer to use to explain each slide. Your young biologists will increase their understanding of the structure and function of arteries, veins, and capillaries. The final slide provides a comparison chart for them to copy and complete as a review of the information absorbed.
Blood Sugar Levels
Use this video to explain how Diabetes affects insulin production. Processing glucose is the main concept explained in this resource. It gives valuable details about the regular, pre, and post-meal normal levels of blood sugar concentration, and how they are affected over time by the different levels of insulin generated in diabetics.
In this blood type instructional activity, students create a wheel showing blood type, antigens and the genes involved in coding for each blood type. Students use the wheel to answer 16 questions about blood type and they complete a chart with the genes, antigens and blood types using what they learned from the wheel.
Using Blood Tests to Identify Babies and Criminals
A thorough commentary on blood type is presented in this handout. Antigens and antibodies are defined. Punnett squares and a pedigree chart help to clarify. Human biology or genetics learners then apply their knowledge to two situations: two newborn baby girls being possibly switched in the hospital and a crime scene investigation. This is an engaging activity that ends with a lab activity simulating the blood typing and identification of the perpetrator.
A Closer Look at Blood
Here is a lab that has teenage scientists examining samples of their own blood under a microscope. Learners carefully prepare slides, then make detailed observations and identifying different types of cells using a key.
Blood Cell Basics
Learners design a proportional model of blood out of red gelatin, a plastic bag, and rice. They study the components that make up blood and investigate what happens when the arteries in different scenerios. They work in pairs in order to figure out ways to clean out our clogged arteries.
New! What is Blood Pressure?
Find out how we describe the force created by the blood against the walls of the vessels in a heart-pumping lesson! As part of a unit on the heart and circulatory system, cardiology kids use a blood pressure monitor to find their systolic and diastolic pressures. To conclude the lesson, they discuss how blood pressure relates to health and graph class member's readings. As well-written as this lesson plan is, pressure to prepare will be removed from your heart!
How Much Blood Do You Have?
Math or life science learners use a TI graphing calculator to create scatter plots of data comparing body weight to blood volume. Questions are answered on the included worksheet about the data. Colorful how-to cards walk learners through the procedure on the calculator, displaying what should appear on the calculator screen at each step.
Red Gold-The Epic Story of Blood
In this blood worksheet, high schoolers watch a video called "The Epic Story of Blood" and answer 24 questions about the creation of blood, how it is produced, blood donation, blood banks and transfusions. Students take an short quiz about the blood and what they learned in the video.
Using Blood-Typing to Determine Causes of Death in Surgery Patients
For this simulation activity, young biologists examine blood types to determine whether the death rate in a hospital was caused because of incorrect identification of patient blood types. You will need obtain and follow the procedures of a blood typing kit in order carry out this lab activity in your classroom. Using this scenario makes a blood typing or scientific method lesson more interesting, and the provided lab sheet makes it easier for you to implement.
The king, the crown and the colonel: How did Thomas Blood try to steal the crown jewels in 1671?
Pupils investigate Thomas Blood's attempt to steal the crown jewels. In this investigative lesson, students use four different primary sources to answer questions about how Thomas Blood tried to steal the crown jewels.
P.L.E.P: Parts of Blood
Students examine the different parts of blood. For this human blood lesson students work in groups and identify parts of blood and construct a model of human blood.
Born of Blood: Inheritance of Blood Types
Students examine inheritance of blood types. In the chromosome lesson, students create a model of chromosome and predict the blood type of offspring.
Born of Blood
Eighth graders use a large Punnett Square and infer how genes determine blood types. In this blood type lesson students predict blood types and demonstrate how Punnett Squares are related to genes and chromosomes.
Blood Noir Book Quiz
In this book facts worksheet, students complete seven multiple choice questions about the book, "Blood Noir." These questions contain concepts such as choosing the correct author, who published the book, when it was on the New York Times best seller list, and more.
History of Blood Transfusions
Eighth graders use the Internet to research the important people in history of blood transfusions. In this blood transfusions lesson students prepare and present an oral presentation of their research.
Circulatory System and the Heart
Watch as the Khan Academy explains why red bloods are efficient carriers of hemoglobin and explains the difference between pulmonary arteries and veins. This thorough video with great explanations and diagrams will surely help your biologists or beginning anatomists.
Antibody Center Template
In this antibodies worksheet, students use model diagrams of antigens, antibodies and blood cells to develop a visual understanding of the immune system. They draw diagrams of antibodies and antigens attached to each other and answer three questions about them. They draw a diagram of agglutination and answer five more questions related to the binding of antibodies to antigens.
Students examine the facts of blood and discuss the different parts of blood and their function. They discover different people have different blood types and where they can go to donate blood.
What You Need To Know About Hish Blood Pressure, Salt, and Sodium
Young scholars explore how arterial pressure or blood pressure is the force of the blood against the wall of your arteries. They comprehend that a normal BP for adults is 120/80 mm Hg. Students comprehend that a normal BO for a teenager is around 110/70. They comprehend that high blood pressure, is also called hypertension, is defined as a BP over (140/90) for adults, (143/91) for adolescents 13-15, and (149/97) for adolescents 16-18.
