Science - The Circulatory System (BLood)

In our lesson about the circulatory system last week, the girls enjoyed a neat experiment that helped them learn the parts and functions of blood.

The large Red Hots candy pieces, lentils, and fava beans were perfect substitutes representing platelets, red and white blood cells.  Corn syrup held them all in suspention as blood plasma.  The experiment even caught the attention of my two older ones who happened to be around at the time. 

I'm linking with Hip Homeschool Hop.  Go see how other homeschoolers are learning!
