GCSE Biology - Blood

A short and snappy powerpoint with images and diagrams showing the basics of blood for GCSE biology, gives explanations of different components in blood including white blood cells, platelets, plasma and more, I am on OCR but this powerpoint is good for AQA and other boards aswell.

Enjoy and I hope this helps please give a rating and comment.

Good LUCK!
