I have used these infographics in my classes for years and I enjoy them. They are quick easy to read and provide visual information as well and textual. It hits many different learning styles. It can be adapted for single or group work. I use them as warm ups and springboard for my lessons. They come from the website www.compoundchem.com. They have ones that cover a wide range of concepts and even current events. They own the rights to the images I’m just selling the worksheet that goes with them that I have created. You can print out the infograph or project it on a smartboard. I have several others that I will be offering as well. Any questions please feel free to ask.
This specific warm-up covers a topic that is a pet peeve of mine. The myth that human blood is blue. Now you maybe thinking that my kids are too smart to fall for that. Try it and just ask them. I do it ever class every semester, high school and college level. And I’m always shocked at the answer. I get more than half think that it’s blue. I teach anatomy and physiology to nursing students and it shocks me that I get the same percent that proudly scream out blue. Even fellow science teachers teach that blood is blue. My own niece had that happen. Anyway HERE is chance to dispel that myth. The warm-up is easy to read and sets off the conversation. The last question is to get them thinking and discussing and backing up their ideas.
