Here are what some happy teachers are saying about the Blood Type resource:

My students and I found this so fun as a supplement to our cardiovascular unit. We did this activity as a class and had fun testing the different blood samples.             – Arielle T.           February 8, 2023

LOVED IT!!! I teach Forensics and Biomedical Science. My students have ALWAYS struggled with blood types so I decided to see if there was a lesson that was more engaging/ interactive than the curriculum my district uses. This lesson was PERFECT! My kids GOT IT! For the first time they really understood how blood typing works and they had FUN learning about it.           – Jessica C.           December 7, 2021

The BEST resource I have found for forensics yet! This is SO well done, and so simple to use. I loved that it was 100% editable. I tailored it to my specific content and the kids LOVED being engaged. I’m honestly impressed and I’ve been making purchases on TPT for years. I’ll be looking up more from this seller.          – Soli S.               February 8, 2021

I am super satisfied with the quality and creativity of this and other activities from Science of Curiosity. I have bought almost every this made for forensics.            – John T.               February 3, 2021
