Year 6 Investigate Blood Components!

This afternoon, we investigated the 4 components in our blood. We then had a go at making a ‘blood smoothie’ using raspberries to represent red blood cells, small white marshmallows to represent white blood cells, pineapple juice to represent plasma and sprinkles to represent platelets. Before the smoothie was blended, we could see all of the individual components, which is what we would see if we looked at a drop of blood under a microscope. When we blended the ‘smoothie’, we couldn’t see any of the components anymore and it looked more the blood we see with our naked eye.
