What’s Blood Got To Do With It? (SAL)

Exploring the Blood Components and Typing

Students engage in an investigation that promotes understanding of the components and types of blood. Students will explore how blood moves through the circulatory system and test their oxygen saturation using a pulse oximeter and test simulated blood samples to determine blood type. This module also exposes students to equipment and methodologies used in the field of hematology. Students will not use blood in these activities. All samples are artificially created to look like blood for the purposes of the experiment.


This module is appropriate for students in Grades 4-6.


The minimum time required to complete this module is 60 minutes.
