Blood Scientists 10.12.2019

In Year 6 science, we are currently learning about the blood and the function of the parts of the blood. To help us to learn the parts of the blood and their function, we had a go at making some blood! We did this by starting off with water and yellow food colouring. This made our plasma - around 55% of our blood. Once we had our plasma, we added red dyed honey loops to represent the red blood cells which are the transportation cells of our blood. We then added a pinch of salt to represent the minerals present in our blood. Finally, we added white blood cells (rice crispies) to help fight germs and platelets (cocoa pops) to help fix and repair wounds! I think you'll all agree the final result looks pretty realistic!
