Pennies for Patients is a science-based, service learning program benefitting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), the world’s largest nonprofit fighting blood cancer.
We’re excited to be sharing a fun and free circulatory system lesson plan and other amazing resources from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. These resources teach students about the circulatory system in a hands-on and engaging way. The lesson includes background information on the circulatory system as well as detailed instructions for fun hands-on activities. These activities work by themselves but also go hand-in-hand with a Pennies for Patients campaign.
Pennies for Patients is a three-week service-learning program for elementary and middle schools where students apply STEM knowledge as they learn about, and support, the cutting-edge work being done to combat cancer.
