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.
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 worksheet, 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.
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.
Blood types and transfusions are explained in reading passages at the top of the worksheet. A chart of blood type compatibility is also provided. Biology students answer comprehension questions and then exercise critical-thinking skills to apply what they have learned to different scenarios. Finally, they solve a Punnett square for the three blood type alleles. This is a reliable resource.
Students 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.
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.
In this blood worksheet, students 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.
In 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.
