THIS IS A BUNDLED UNIT OF STUDY IN WORD FORMAT.
This is a comprehensive unit on blood cells for the high school student. There is an introduction for the teacher which describes how to use this unit. A PPT introduction for the first day, an open notes activity, and 5 assignments which includes an assignment on blood typing with interactives embedded in the assignment. Loads of fun for the interactive learner! All keys included :).
1. First introduce blood cells by using the “Blood Cells PPT”.
2. Give the students a copy of the “Blood Cells Open Notes”, then project the notes onto a whiteboard or Promethean board. Fill in the blanks with the students using the KEY. The “Blood Cells Open Notes W.S.” is completed after the open notes have been filled in. This assignment goes directly in order of open notes so there are no tricks or surprises. The answer KEY to the worksheet is included.
3. The “Blood Cells Matching” can be completed from the “Open Notes”. I print the “Blood Cells X-Word” on the back for a comprehensive assignment that can be completed directly from the open notes. Both keys are included.
4. Next, “Blood Cell ID for SS” is an assignment created for a 50 minute class. It can be completed from the actual document itself with some assistance from the open notes – no additional resources are needed. The “Key” is included for the teacher .
5. Lastly, an introduction to “Blood Typing” is an assignment that can also be completed as the answers are embedded in the document itself. There are two web interactives that can be completed at the end of the assignment. There are instructions to complete the interactives - snip and paste the results into the actual assignment and drop the assignment into a drop box (such as Black Board, Schoology or School Space).
Note to teachers: I make a lot of my assignments in an electronic format to be completed on a computer or laptop to save paper. Students then submit their assignment in a drop box such as Black Board, Schoology or School Space. In this type of format, there are two red asterisks where students are to place an answer or information (such as name, date, etc.). When the student places his/her cursor between the 2 red asterisks and types the answer in red, they can easily see that they’ve answered the question and the teacher can easily grade the document electronically (I’m always looking for the red responses!). However, most ALL of my electronic assignments can easily be made into a printed paper assignment with little to no modification to the document whatsoever. Just hit ‘print’. This is especially helpful for absent students that will need a paper copy of an electronic document.
