When planning out science lessons, I head to my anatomy board.is this blood type activity from Highhill Education. I loved both the visual and the acting aspect of it. I’d highly recommend reading her post because it’s just one part of a great series.
Two things: Hi, Future Ticia 2021 is updating images, and a few comments, and I’m also wanting to say there are affiliate links in here
Blood type activity supplies:
Let’s get started!
Start out by labeling all of your victims with blood types. We kept it simple, just the different letter types (A, B, AB, O), we didn’t get into the positive/negative aspects.
There was a terrible accident in our house, and we had a large number of people suddenly in need of transfusions. So, we learned who could donate to who, and why O is such a wonderful blood type to have and very very needed by hospitals.
We talked about where they might hook up the IV, and why they might do it there. We talked about what to do AFTER you give blood, and why it was so important to eat the cookies and drink the orange juice.
Looking at this picture now, I’m not sure we hooked up our IVs in the right place. But, we talked about why they would tape down the IV once it was in your arm.
Which led to other discussions about my kids experience with IVs (2 of my kids have had surgeries under general anesthesia, and did not react well to coming out of it).
I’d give you a more detailed description, but really she did a much better job than I’d probably do on my inspiration post, so just go read her stuff.
Sigh, there are times I miss my little kiddos, but I have to say I super love my giant teens.
