The experiment – You will need: Cheerio style cereal pieces, a clear plastic bottle, a plastic food bad, red food colouring, a pinch of salt, mini-marshmallows and some purple pompoms.
Step 1: Make the plasma by filling a clear, plastic beaker ¾ full of water and adding 6 drops of food colouring and a pinch of salt to show the materials and chemicals are present.
Step 2: Place 2 handfuls of cheerio-type cereal into a plastic food bag and add red food colouring until the cereal is completely covered in order to represent the red blood cells. Then, add about 20 mini-marshmallows to act as white blood cells. Ask children questions to ensure they remembered the role and function of each component of blood.
Step 3: Next, add some small, purple pompoms to represent the platelets into the plastic beaker to finalise their blood samples.
