Are you bummed that the Nobel Prize website took down their interactive blood typing game? Me too! I created this tutorial to fill the void left in my lesson plan now that the Nobel website has been removed.
This interactive tutorial contains 96 interactive slides that cover the topic of blood types and transfusions. In this tutorial, students will learn the basics of group A, group B, group AB, group O, and Rh factor. Afterwards, students will apply what they have learned to help 3 patients who were involved in an auto accident. At the end, there is a 9 question quiz to solidify understanding.
This is NOT a typical main idea/bullet point PowerPoint presentation. This is very much an interactive/multimedia slideshow were students can work at their own pace as they learn the concepts of blood types and transfusions.
This tutorial also comes with a student worksheet to help guide them as they work.

Questions I have been asked in the past:
1) How do you use this tutorial in your classroom?
I have accumulated a class set of USB/thumb/flash drives and have this tutorial saved on each. When I use these tutorials, I escort my class to the school’s computer lab. When we arrive to the lab, I distribute a USB flash drive to each student (or sometimes a group of 2 students).
Prior to my class set of USB drives, I burned a class set of CD’s with this tutorial and various others. When we arrived at the computer lab, I would distribute a CD to each student. This method worked well for years but many computers today lack CD drives so this may not be a good option for some. If your computers have a CD drive, this is an easy and inexpensive option.
2) How did you obtain a class set of USB/thumb/flash drives?
Some of the USB drives I purchased years ago for my own needs. However, many were donated by colleagues as many people have extra USB drives cluttering up their drawers at home. A few were donated by students who had extras at home. Just ask around and I bet you can accumulate a small collection.
