Journey to Planet Earth: Land of Plenty, Land of Want. The Public Television Series. [Videotape].
This videotape gives students the opportunity to view farming practices in four distinctly different countries: Zimbabwe, France, China, and the United States. By viewing farming methods throughout the world and studying the different challenges facing the world's farmers, students will be able to appreciate the commonality of all farmers--they all live on a thin edge, vulnerable to the forces of nature and the conditions of pollution, population, and politics imposed by society. The tape is accompanied by a study guide that includes learning objectives, previewing activities, postviewing activities, suggestions for group discussion and questions, and ideas for special projects.
