This 45-90 minute lab gives students a chance to sharpen their microscope skills while learning about the functions and properties of blood and identifying the cells themselves.
This lab contains an introduction to the properties of blood, vocabulary, pre-lab questions, a scientific drawing section, and post-lab questions.
This lab is appropriate for grades 5 through 8 and is intended for use in the Middle School Classroom, but can be used with younger children with extra assistance.
You will need microscopes to complete this activity - however, you could also find images of red blood cells and white blood cells on the web and print out for students to use instead.
I hope you enjoy - don't forget to rate!
