Introduce the six vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.


Have students read the leveled reading passages about the circulatory system, the heart, bone marrow, and blood cells. Then complete the organizers and comprehension questions related to the articles. Have students read two character studies where they will meet Dr. Willem Kolff, who made the first artificial heart and Dr. Charles Drew, who set up the first blood bank.

Interactive Activities:

There are lots of hands-on activities in this pack depending on the age of your students and time allotted for this unit.

✔True/False Questions

✔Fact or Fiction Activity

✔Vocabulary Match-Up

✔Spotlight on Vocabulary

✔Dr. Charles Drew & Dr. Kolff Character Studies

✔5 Page Flip Book

Have students complete the Flipbook and build it page by page. I usually have them do one page at each center or learning station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip-up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12x18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover.
