To incorporate living organisms into an educational, hands-on learning situation.
To stimulate the students' interest in science and to encourage them to investigate the world using scientific discipline.
To foster an appreciation for the diversity of the biological world.
To provide the teacher with a complete science unit and/or to reinforce a classroom's existing studies.
"The Living Planet" introduces students to the differences and similarities in all living things; from green plants, to herbivorous and carnivorous animals, to the fungal decomposers. Students receive hands-on contact with live amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, and representative plants and fungi.
"Students see the energy flow at work: how ultraviolet energy from the sun moves through green plants, to the animals, and finally to the decomposers. It's an animal oriented, ecologically eye opening program designed to make kids think".
