This kit offers the most procedurally accurate simulation of the blood typing technique available. Students in grades 5-college will test and determine the ABO/Rh blood types of four different samples by combining simulated blood and antisera, gently agitating the blood typing tray, and observing the results. No toothpicks, no stirring, and no waiting for results! Kit contains enough materials for 10 groups as well as a Teacher's Manual and reproducible Student Study Guide copymasters.
Kit also includes:
4 Simulated Blood Samples (Donor 1, Donor 2, Donor 3, and Donor 4)
1 Bottle of Simulated Anti-A Serum
1 Bottle of Simulated Anti-B Serum
1 Bottle of Simulated Anti-Rh Serum
40 Blood Typing Trays
This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.
Suggested Science Idea(s)
| Elementary || || Middle School || || High School |
| 3-LS3-1 |
Students can use the Simulated ABO/Rh Blood Typing Kit to analyze and interpret data from an investigation to provide evidence that animals have traits inherited from parents and that variations of these traits exist in a group of similar organisms.
| || MS-LS4-4 |
Students can use the Simulated ABO/Rh Blood Typing Kit in an investigation to construct an explanation based on evidence that describes how genetic variations of traits in a population increase some individuals' probability of surviving and reproducing in a specific environment.
| || HS-LS1-2 |
Students can use the Simulated ABO/Rh Blood Typing Kit to model the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions with multicellular organism. HS-LS3-3
Students can use the Simulated ABO/Rh Blood Typing Kit in an investigation to apply concepts of statistics and probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population.
Using the simulated blood, students learn about blood typing and test to determine the ABO/Rh blood types. The Teacher's Manual and reproducible Student Study Guide copymasters provide a framework for teaching and learning.
