What is blood?

We have been learning about the human body in school this year. Today we learned about what is blood? Here’s an easy way to make a microscopic model of  blood with ingredients found in your kitchen.We learned about all of its properties and made a Science project, my kids loved making it. Here is what you will need:

Clear container with lid

Karo syrup (plasma) 

Red hot candies (red blood cells)

Lima beans (white blood cells) I couldn’t find any big Lima beans at my store so I had to use baby Lima beans. White blood cells are much bigger than red blood cells.

Letntils (platelets)

Pour in Karo syrup then everything else and give it a little stir. You can have your kids write about what they learned in their science journals and there are some fun free worksheets online that you can print off that will help with this lesson.
