All about Plant & Animal Interdependency. Plant Life for Children[TM]. Schlessinger Science Library. [Videotape].
Plants provide oxygen, food, shelter, medicine and more for all animals, including humans. In fact, people depend on plants for their very survival just as plants rely on animals! In All About Plant & Animal Interdependency, join aspiring botanists as they discover how plants and animals interrelate. Learn about the constant exchange of gases in the oxygen-carbon dioxide cycle. Discover the amazing way plants provide energy to all of the Earth's inhabitants through the process of photosynthesis. Find out how animals play an important role in plant reproduction and how they are instrumental in dispersing plant seeds. In a hands-on experiment, kids learn how animals transport a seed to new locations. This title correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Life Science -- characteristics of organisms, life cycles of organisms and organisms & environments. This title includes a teacher's guide featuring additional information on the topic, vocabulary words, discussion questions, follow-up activities and lists of recommended books and Internet resources.
