Blood and Cells

  • CalendarAvailable on request
  • Clock outline2-4 hours
  • Available in Welsh

Our blood and cells activity includes an overview of blood which we demonstrate using props.

The activity includes aspects such as, 'guess how many bottles of blood are in our bodies?', as well as guessing the composition of blood in the body.

The second part includes a hands-on session where the class will learn about the different type of cells found in the human body, together with their function. Then, they have the chance to design and keep a cell out of modelling clay.
