Inside Living Things

All living things are made of the same building blocks: cells. In some cases, these cells combine to form tissues and organs inside plants and animals. This unit helps students explore the structures that make up plants and animals. Students will read about the major organs and body systems inside animals, and discover how all of the parts of an organism work together to keep it alive and healthy.
