Amazing Plants Series

Dec. 2004

Divided into five short segments, this succinct introduction to the world of plants discusses the nature, importance, and grouping of plants.  The live-action photography is very appealing, and the straightforward narration proceeds at a good pace.  Each segment features an interactive portion in which students are asked to respond to posed questions.  Most questions are open-ended and require some investigative thinking.  A short quiz follows the summary.  Including a detailed teacher's guide, this is a solid choice for science classrooms.
