Making blood!

Classes

We are very much enjoying our science topic on the heart and keeping helathy.  This week we learnt about the components of blood, and to help us remember, we made up our own blood!
We used:
- cheerios dyed with red food colouring for the red blood cells
- mini marshmallows for the white blood cells
- water with yellow food colouring for the plasma
- mini craft balls for the platelets
 
We learnt about the function of each part of blood and how they keep us healthy.
