In this activity, students will examine how antigens on the surface of red blood cells determine the ABO blood types. Using templates provided in the activity, students will construct models of the antibodies present in A, B, AB, and O blood types. Using the ABO blood antigen models created in Activity 3A “Hey, What's Your Type? and the antibody models from this activity, students will demonstrate the process of agglutination to enhance their understanding of antibody-antigen reactions.
