This is an animated PowerPoint presentation that covers the Blood part of Section 2.3 Blood and Circulation of the Edexcel IGCSE Biology course.
The PowerPoint covers the following questions:
Can you recall the composition of blood? What is the role of plasma in the transport of carbon dioxide, digested food, urea, hormones and heat energy? How are red blood cells adapted for transporting oxygen? How does the immune system respond to disease (pathogens) using phagocytes and lymphocytes? Can you explain how vaccinations work? How are platelets involved in blood clotting?
The PowerPoint is designed to directly address each relevant point in the syllabus. It is simple and straight to the point covering the topic in just the right amount of detail.
It is a fantastic resource for both teachers and students or a great tool for revision.
Many of the slides have animations in that will only work when viewed in slideshow mode, so please use that when working through the presentation.
