> Blood Cell Bingo Game

Target age group: ages 10 and up (great for high school!) Time allowance: 5-15 minutes per game (play multiple games) Description: This is standard bingo except that the board is made of moveable, double-sided pieces. There are four levels of clues, so the game can easily be played multiple times. Also included are two “cheat sheets” that can be handed out to the players, making the game more of a learning activity and less of a guessing game (since the clues require remembering facts). This game is recommended as a review activity, not as a method of initial teaching. 6 Copies of pattern pages printed onto card stock, some copies on regular paper, about 15 tokens for each player (pennies, candies, etc.)

The Circulation Game

Basic science concepts covered: distribution of oxygen to cells and carbon dioxide to lungs via red blood cells, production of red blood cells in bone, delivery of sugar and protein to cells via the blood stream, delivery of wastes to the kidneys for disposal out of the body, the heart as the driving force that keeps the blood moving, the “map” of the circulatory system in and out of lungs, heart and body parts. Description: This is a two-team game that can accommodate 2-6 players (possibly 7 or 8). Players spin the heart spinner to find out how many beats the team gets that turn. Target age group: ages 8-14 Time allowance: 30-60 minutes to assemble (time greatly depends on how much coloring is done and if assembly is being done by students in class or adults ahead of time) and 30-45 minutes to play Materials needed: Click here to download The Circulation Game Comments are closed.
