Components of the blood activity

Year 6 have been learning about the human circulatory system. Today, they used plasticine to create  a model of blood sample in a petri dish. They used white plasticine to create the two different types of white blood cells, red plasticine for the erythrocytes (red blood cells), coloured water for the blood plasma and small dots for the platelets. The children researched each cell and what they did as they made their sample.
