Explore Blood Science!
When our children fall and injure themselves or get a cut, being the inquisitive little explorers that they are, they often become curious about the blood they see. They may ask many questions such as, where does it come from? Why do we have it? Is it harmful or helpful? Why is it red? This activity uses many items that are familiar to your child to allow him to create a model of blood and all its parts. He will learn about blood’s different parts, why we need blood and what it does for us. Have fun learning about one of the most important parts of the body!
