 Week 1
Lesson 1
What is blood?
This lesson explains the basic characteristics and functions of human blood.
Lesson 2
Blood Genetics
This lesson explains the basic genetics behind what determined your blood type. Punnett square are introduced to calculate the probability of an offspring's blood type.
Lesson 3
What's your blood type?
In this lesson, you will be guided through testing your blood type at home with a kit and how to read the results. If the student is testing their own blood, parental supervision required during this lesson. Students will then play a game in which they blood type a patient and then give a blood transfusion.
  • Grasp Rh Factor Proteins: Understand the role and importance of Rh factor proteins in blood typing.
  • Understand Blood Anatomy: Gain a comprehensive understanding of the components and functions of human blood.
  • Master ABO Blood Types: Learn the differences between ABO blood types and the significance of each.
  • Learn Punnett Squares: Master the use of Punnett squares to predict blood type inheritance.
  • Explore Blood Typing Methods: Discover how blood is typed using anti-serum and the principles behind it.
  • Understand Blood Transfusions: Learn the critical process of cross-typing for safe blood transfusions and its life-saving importance.
  • Hands-On Blood Testing: Gain practical experience by observing a demonstration of at-home blood testing.
  • Engage in Simulation: Apply your knowledge in an interactive online game to simulate blood typing and transfusions.
