Better Biology is known for its graphically enhanced virtual labs, with added pictures/instructions that make the lab flow and easy to follow for both students and teachers and eliminating frustration. Using the Nobelprize.org site and their "Blood Typing Game", students explore and learn about the history of the ABO and RH Systems, identify the antigen and antibody components of blood types and learn about blood compatibility. Better Biology's, "Before you Begin --> Engage your Brain" takes students through nomenclature and thoroughly reviews the essentials of blood type prior to starting the lab. This can be used as a pre-lab, either in class or for homework. The virtual lab takes most students:
Before you Begin --> Engage your Brain (30 minutes)
Virtual Lab (20-30 minutes)
