Why do animals cooperate? What’s the difference between cooperation and symbiosis? And what are the different kinds of symbiosis? Help children learn the answers to these questions and more as they examine why animals cooperate; what mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism are; and what the difference is between an endoparasite and an ectoparasite. Numerous examples are given to help explain these relationships and the pros and cons of each. A multitude of illustrations make these concepts accessible and easier to understand.
At the end of the unit, students can review 9 key vocabulary words, match the names of various animal groups to the examples given, and enjoy a review activity. Students can also personalize the book by coloring the illustrations if desired. Answer keys are provided. 21 pages total. Ages 8-13.
