Where Does the Blood Go?
Students investigate where the blood in our hearts travels by observing a diagram in class. In this cardiovascular lesson, students examine their own heart by checking their pulse in class. Students investigate a human body diagram and identify the heart and lungs before playing a ball tossing activity.
Life in a Blood Vessel
Students explain the various activities that are constantly going on in a blood cell by role playing a blood cell, antibody, pathogen, and platelets.
Aspects of Individual Human Blood Pressure
Students learn about human blood pressure. In this biology lesson plan, students gain an understanding of the relationship between hypertension and it's risk factors, demonstrate how pressure builds up in clogged arteries, and measure both systolic and diastolic pressure by a sphygmomanometer.
Red Blood Cell Slide! Cholesterol and Your Body
Students compare their family's eating habits with USDA guidelines. In this life science lesson, students play the role of red blood cells traveling through the body's veins and arteries. They discuss ways to keep themselves healthy.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: Study Questions and Essay Topics
In this Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince worksheet, students discuss the importance of Harry's past, the role and development of other characters, the role of Quidditch, and predict the future for Hogwarts.
Bloodstain Pattern Doesn't Lie......
An interesting lesson plan on hypothesizing about the diameter of a drop of blood that is splattered. To test their theories, learners work in groups to make blood droplets splatter from different heights. They use graphed data to write an equation for the mathematical relationship of the droplet diameter and the height from which it was dropped.
Elastic Recoil in Arteries and Veins
A lab in which high schoolers examine the difference between arteries and veins. Budding biologists will find out which blood vessel can stretch furthest, recording their data in a table then answering several questions evaluating their work and safety procedures. Note: the two PDFs shown under the downloads section are both linked to the technician notes, but the sheet for your pupils is available as a Word document.
Interrupting the blood flow to the brain will cause the tissues to be damaged. Sal describes the 2 main types using a great image and labels on diagrams. This ischemic stroke video assumes some knowledge of the main terms like embolism, thrombosis, etc.
Students investigate the implications of blood pressure. They use film canisters and balloons to build models that help them explain how blood pressure works.
If your students need more information about diabetes measurements, this video will be very useful. Sal explains the correlation between glucose and hemoglobin and resulting bonds that affect the levels of Hemoglobin AC1 (hemoglobin AC1) in the blood. By explaining how rates of AC1 formation are affected, Sal is able to demonstrate that doctors can estimate a measure of glucose over time.
More Genetics Practice
If your blood type is "Be Positive," then you will appreciate this genetics worksheet! Learners answer questions about the A, B, and O alleles, and practice solving blood type problems. They also explain and solve problems relating to the sex-linked hemophilia condition. This is a nicely formatted worksheet, ideal for assigning as homework to your biology class.
If Hemoglobin and Red Blood Cells play an important role in your curriculum or have piqued your students' interest, then this video would be an asset for understanding that higher acidity and Carbon Dioxide play an allosteric inhibition role. Although a biology topic, the presentation is not overly complex and can stimulate cross-curricular concepts with chemistry.
The Circulatory System (Grades 6-8)
Young scholars explore the interrelationship of structure and function in the circulatory system. They name the parts of the circulatory system and telling what each part does. They draw a picture of the heart and describe the pathway of blood through it.
A Tour Through the Circulatory System
Use Microsoft Publisher to create a brochure tracing the path blood flows through the body. Working in cooperative groups, seventh graders use creative writing skills to create a "travel" brochure written from the viewpoint of a drop of blood. This would be a great cross-curricular lesson between science and language arts.
No Valve in Vain
Students design and create their own heart valves out of a variety of materials. Their heart valves are one way valves designed for water flowing through a tube representing blood moving through the heart.
Glucose Insulin and Diabetes
This video would be great to use as an introduction to diabetes and the concepts of glucose, insulin levels, and their relationship. The differences between type I and type II are explained, as are the basic ways of treating the buildup of glucose in the blood.
Translating Genetic Information
Learners explore the process of translation. They determine the correct sequencing and present their strands to the class. In addition, they compare normal red blood cells to sickle cells and complete discussion questions.
World War II
Sixth graders read Under the Blood Red Sun (UBRS), V is for Victory (V), and Number the Stars(NS). They examine WWII through the eyes of Japanese, Danish, and American students and complete at least two projects: a radio broadcast and a powerpoint.
Human Blood: Microviewer
In this human blood: microviewer worksheet, students answer questions about blood, red blood cells, white blood cells, phagocytosis, blood type B, fibrin, sickle cells, and infected blood. Students also draw quick sketches of a human blood slide.
In this blood worksheet, students complete a crossword puzzle given 24 clues about the components of the blood, the cells of the blood and the immune system with its antigens and antibodies found in the blood.
