Using Ward's exclusive completely safe and nontoxic Simulated Blood, students can simulate an actual blood typing experiment and also delve into the concepts of Rh typing. Upon completion of this kit an unknown sample of blood will be typed. During this process, students will employ the basic science framework concepts of Structures and Properties (LS1) and Heredity (LS3) in order to examine the risks of Rh incompatibilities and view red and white “blood cells” under a microscope.
This kit has been aligned with all published National Standards. Pre- and Post- laboratory assessments and vocabulary words all target specific Science and Engineering Practices and Common Core Standards. The teacher guide also contains specific “Did You Know” concepts that link the real works with the scientific standards explored. A student copymaster is also included. Included are enough materials for 12 groups of students.
