In this video, students learn about plant structures and how certain adaptations help plants survive. After learning about plant defense mechanisms, students join the "You at the Zoo" student team to make predictions about what might happen when you touch a sensitive plant with a feather versus a finger. Use the Guided Viewing and Assessment to explore the diversity and interdependence of life. Students will complete a pre and post viewing activity with this guide.
This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
