Insects & Other Arthropods. Animal Life in Action[TM]. Schlessinger Science Library. [Videotape].
This 23-minute videotape for grades 5-8, presents the myriad of animal life that exists on the planet. Students can view and perform experiments and investigations that help explain animal traits and habits. They also learn that there are more species of insects than any other animal class in the world. Insects are incredible creatures with many natural skills that benefit the earth as well as people's lives. This program teaches about their characteristics and shows students the differences between insects and arachnids. A hands-on experiment with pill bugs to see what type of living environment these little crustaceans prefer is included. This program is based on the concepts outlined in the National Science Education Standards for Life Science: (1) structure and function in living systems; (2) reproduction and heredity; (3) regulation and behavior; (4) populations and ecosystems; and (5) diversity and adaptations of organisms. A teacher's guide is also included. (ASK)
