Science - The Circulatory System

In our Science lessons this term, we are learning about the circulatory system.

How can we see our pulse?

We have been using blutac and cocktail sticks to see the pulse in our wrists.

What is blood made from?

We have been making models of blood.

Cheerios represented red blood cells, pasta represented white blood cells, sugar syrup represented plasma and broken cheerios represented platelets.

Interesting Fact: There are 5 million red blood cells, 10 thousand white blood cells, and 250 thousand platelets in a pinhead-size drop of blood.

How does blood move around the body?

We have taken on the role of red blood cells and explored how we move through different blood vessels and the chambers of the heart to major organs of the body. We also collected blocks to represent oxygen from the lungs to give to organs to help them function.
