In this blood worksheet, students review what makes up blood: plasma, platelets, and red and white blood cells. Students also learn how the blood helps fight viruses, bacteria, and other foreign substances. This worksheet has 10 fill in the blank, 7 true or false, and 4 short answer questions.
Our bodies are designed so wonderfully! When we get a cut, several elements are right on hand to help your blood clot. Platelets, fibrin, and other clotting factors are floating around in our vessels and become sticky when they need to close up a wound. Show this animated video to a group of young scientists.
The ciculatory system is introduced here by means of clear, labelled diagrams and charts with details. After learning the basics of the heart strucure, a sequence of slides help show the flow the blood as the heart muscle contracts. A comprehensive review of all components in the circulatory system.
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 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.
Ask your biology apprentices twenty-three questions about blood content and blood function. Although the questions were written as a reading guide, you can use the worksheet as a unit quiz or a review in preparation for a unit quiz. It offers comprehensive coverage of the topic of blood.
In this circulatory systems worksheet, students describe the pathway of blood as it travels through the human body's circulatory system. Students use various resources to fill in the blank about the circulatory system (blood pressure, blood components, and how the heart beats).
In this internal systems and regulation worksheet, students correctly decide if given statements are true or false. Students apply information learned about the circulatory system to the given statements to determine statements of truth and accuracy.
In this blood learning exercise, students describe the four functions of blood. Then they write what each part of the human body illustrated does below the picture. Students also complete the table on possible blood types of a receiver and donor of blood.
In this ecology learning exercise, students identify and locate various vocabulary terms pertaining to micro-organisms and the study of ecology. There are 30 biology terms located in the word search.
In this World Blood Donor Day instructional activity, students complete activities such as reading a passage, phrase matching, fill in the blanks, correct words, multiple choice, spelling, sequencing, scrambled sentences, writing questions, survey, and writing. Students complete 12 activities on World Blood Donor Day.
Fifth graders review the components of blood and write four things they have learned. They view a videodisk related to blood components and create a batch of candy "blood" using terminology including platelets, red blood cells, white blood cells, and plasma.
High schoolers identify the different parts of the circulatory system and their function. They work together to create their own model of the system and use it to determine the rate of blood flow. They answer questions related to their model.
Ninth graders study facts about human blood and what it is made of. In this blood composition lesson plan students divide into groups and complete several activities.
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.
Students record their blood types on a class graph and calculate the potential number of blood donors for each group.
In this circulatory system worksheet, students review the functions of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Students label the parts of a human heart on a diagram. This worksheet has 4 short answer, 13 matching, and 9 true or false questions.
In this circulatory system activity, students use an internet program to observe the circulatory system and answer short answer questions about it. Students complete 21 short answer questions.
A variety of animals' circulatory systems are compared to the human circulatory system. Paul Andersen uses his SMART Board to show the differences between two, three, and four chamber hearts, focusing on the human heart. Blood vessels and blood components are thoroughly discussed, as well as the cardiac cycle. This is a great resource for a biology, anatomy, or physiology class. Note: At the very end of the movie, Andersen refers to the vessels that supply the heart with blood as carotid arteries. Carotid arteries supply the head and neck with blood. Andersen is referring to coronary arteries.
