Making 'blood' in science

Classes

During our science topic of the Heart and Keeping Healthy, we made our own blood to revise the different components.
 
We used:
cheerios soaked in red food colouring for the red blood cells
yellow food colouring for the plasma
mini marshmallows for the white blood cells
pom pom balls for the platelets
 
We all agreed it was a fun way to learn the different components.
