Who has the best blood?

In cardio/health this morning we were discussing blood components, blood types, and cholesterol when a student asked the question, “Who has the best blood?”  This lead to a discussion of donating blood and the types of blood that make for good donors and good receivers.  After about 10 minutes on the topic, it seemed that about half the class fully understood and the other half was resting somewhere between utterly confused and mildly confused.

The Red Cross has a helpful (and somewhat interactive) breakdown of blood types that I think may help push people from confusion to understanding.  Take a look and let me know what you think.  Let me know if you know of any other helpful tools for teaching/understanding blood types.
