Students can simulate an actual blood-typing experiment.
- Students Employ the Concepts of Structures and Properties (LS1) and Heredity (LS3)
- Kit Aligns with National Standards
- Material for 12 groups of Students
- Estimated Lab Time—Part A: 30 minutes, Part B: 20 minutes
- Assessments and Vocabulary Words Target Common Core Standards
Using Ward's® exclusive, safe, and nontoxic simulated blood, students can simulate a blood-typing experiment and also delve into the concepts of Rh typing. Upon completion of this kit, students will have typed an unknown sample of blood. During this process, they employ the basic science framework concepts of Structures and Properties (LS1) and Heredity (LS3) to examine the risks of Rh incompatibilities and view simulated red and white blood cells under a microscope.
This kit aligns with all published National Standards. Pre and post-laboratory assessments and vocabulary words 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.
Ordering Information: This kit contains one bottle each of Ward's Simulated Blood: Mr. Smith, Ward's Simulated Blood: Mr. Jones, Ward's Simulated Blood: Mr. Green, Ward's Simulated Blood: Ms. Brown, simulated anti-A serum, simulated anti-B serum, simulated anti-Rh serum, 48 blood-typing slides, 200 toothpicks, one package of microscope slides, one package of coverslips, a teacher's guide, and a student's copymaster. Compound microscopes (400x magnification) and markers are not included.
