For years, many scientists classified all living things as animals, plants or fungi. Certain microorganisms, while displaying characteristics similar to a number of these groups, just didn't fit. Welcome to the Kingdom Protista! Neither animal, plant nor fungus, protists can be regarded as "leftovers." In fact, it's almost easier to discuss protists by what they are not than to accurately describe what they are. In Protists, students will delve into the question-filled world of these mysterious simple organisms. Learn the importance of the hard-shelled diatoms and the uses of the multicelled kelp, and meet the most complex single-celled organism of all -- the paramecium. In addition, a hands-on investigation will turn students into science sleuths as they observe the plant-like and animal-like characteristics of the protist, Euglena. One of four volumes in the Simple Organisms in Action DVD Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library in Action Collection. This title correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Life Science: structure & function in living systems, reproduction & heredity, regulation & behavior, populations & ecosystems, and diversity & adaptations of organisms. A teacher's guide, which features additional information on the topic, vocabulary words, discussion questions, follow-up activities and lists of recommended books & Internet resources, is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
