PRODUCT SUMMARY


Some are pretty and others are prickly. Some have flowers and fruit, and others have needles. What are they? You guessed it -- amazing plants! Join a young investigative agent for M.A.P.L.E. (the Marvelous Association of Plant Loving Enthusiasts) and his friends from around the country as they uncover fascinating information about the world of plants in Plant Life for Children. This video series introduces young viewers to the plant world, where they will learn about the parts of a plant, how they grow, how pollination works and much more. Children will be intrigued as they find out about the incredible variety of plants from the Venus flytrap to the saguaro cactus. They will also perform hands-on experiments to obtain an appreciation for plant life. This program is based on the concepts outlined in the National Science Education Standards for Life Science: characteristics of organisms, life cycles of organisms and organisms & environments. Teacher's Guides are included and available online.
