Exploring the Immune System {Playdough}



This system is pretty abstract so I thought a good way to extend on the activities we did earlier this week was to incorporate some "building" with play dough. 

I placed the Immune System 3 Part Cards on the play dough table and showed the kids how to make a model of each type of cell. We talked about what each one did and acted out a mini immune response with the antibodies and white blood cells. It was really fun! 

Here's what we used:

playdough (red, white, green, orange)
Immune System Cards (free to print)
