Brilliant Blood!

In Science we have been learning what our blood is made of. We made our own models of human blood using a plastic bottle as the vein/artery and added various ingredients along with red food colouring to look like blood under the microscope!

We used red cheerios to act as the red blood cells, mini marshmallows as white blood cells, large pink marshmallows as the platelets and yellow food colouring in water as the plasma! It was extremely messy but lots of fun!!
