STEMbite: Engaging Plants

The science teacher discusses features of weeds in his backyard and how their thorns are used by the plant to engage animals. Other methods that plants use to engage animals include appearance, scent, and the taste of their products. Mr. Vander Heuvel likens the way plants engage animals to how people negatively or positively engage each other. This unique video would be a great discussion-starter for a character lesson on how we treat others, or you could simply use it as an introduction to plant adaptations in your life science class.
