Needs of living things - ScienceWeb

This online resource is a unit for Foundation Year students on the needs of living things.

Through the first-hand experience of a guest presenter, Foundation students identify ways in which people look after a pet to meet its basic needs. Focus questions help identify what senses the animal uses to help meet those needs. Students use the experience to create a model of a pet and identify how they would meet its needs.
