Making Blood

Another great science day at co-op for Flower. Last week they dissected cow's eyes. This week they made blood

Here's the recipe:
Corn syrup = plasma
Sprinkles = platelets
Marshmallows = white blood cells
Red Hots = red blood cells (they are on the bottom of the jar, turning the corn syrup red.

Pretty cool, eh?

We made a blood model at the beginning of the school year. It was fun! It looks great!
