Dinner and Dessert?

What do corn syrup, lima beans, lentils, red hots and a jar have in common?

They are the components of your blood!


Today was another fun Science day! We have been studying Life Science.
The first living thing we have been studying is the human...Skeletal System, Muscular System and now, Circulatory System.

Here's what we learned:

Corn Syrup=Plasma - keeps all the components moving and carries nutrients

Red Hots=red blood cells - carry oxygen to all the body parts

Lima Beans=white blood cells - eat harmful bacteria

Lentils=Platelets - plug up cuts to stop them from bleeding

This one will stick in his head for quite awhile!
