Plants and Animals: Diversity and Interactions

Plants and Animals: Diversity and Interactions

Grade 2 - Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems

In this Storyline, students develop an understanding of the great diversity of life in various habitats around the world, including those near where they live. They plan and carry out an investigation to determine what plants need to grow and explore cause-and-effect relationships between plant growth and exposure to sunlight and water. Students then develop models to explore the structure and function of animal and plant parts that aid in pollination and seed dispersal.
