How I Use It
I teach biology students blood types during genetics, and to get them to understand universal donors and receivers, and compatibility, I use this game to reinforce what they've been taught, and to expand their knowledge in a visual, meaningful way. I tried it once as an introduction to the blood types, but it works better to give them background information first. They had little prior knowledge of blood types.
My Take
I was looking for a way to help students better understand how the blood types play a role in medicine so that they could better grasp the different blood types and if they are compatible. This game was an excellent way for them to learn and expand their knowledge of blood types and also provided a real world tie that gets them engaged and motivated.
