Web of Life Connections; Learning about the interdependence of life

by: Gail Laubenthal

This article offers suggestions for helping students understand the interdependence of life through firsthand experiences, by focusing on something familiar—their family, and by playing "what if" games to open up an array of possible scenarios. It also offers examples of "teachable moments" that can point out practical examples of interdependence.
