Our Living World
This book presents a program of basic studies dealing with living organisms. The characteristics of each living kingdom are presented and the diversity among species within the same kingdom is illustrated. Topics include algae, bacteria, fungi, and various species of plants and animals. Each of the twelve teaching units in this book is introduced by a color transparency (print books) or PowerPoint slide (eBooks) that emphasizes the basic concept of the unit and presents questions for discussion. Reproducible student pages provide reinforcement and follow-up activities. The teaching guide offers descriptions of the basic concepts to be presented, background information, suggestions for enrichment activities, and a complete answer key.
