Learning week of January 18th
Explore lesson 2 - Developing Experts
In this lesson you will find out what your blood is made of.
Follow the Live Lesson on Monday afternoon with Mrs Orth or complete the activity below.
Get creative by making your own blood smoothie. Decide what will represent each ingredient found in blood e.g. apple juice = plasma, white marshmallows = white blood cells.
Important: Ask an adult and only drink the smoothie with adult supervision if it can be consumed safely and isn't too weird. We don't want any 'George's Marvellous Medicine reactions'.
If you are in school and don't worry. You can create a model using coloured Lego or multilink or any objects from the classroom to show what blood is made from.
Add a key to and definition of each ingredient.
