Symbiotic Relationships in Animals and Plants is a power point presentation. This is a highly engaging activity that includes fill in the blanks in the power point. Many pictures of the organisms in the various symbiotic relationships are included.
The power point describes and illustrates the symbiotic relationships of mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism.
A section at the end of the slide show reviews the definition of the three relationships, and presents review questions that ask students to match vocabulary terms to pictures of organisms/relationships.
A fill in the blank worksheet that matches this power point is also available. The worksheet is designed to fit into a science journal (composition book) and to be filled in as the class works through the power point.
My students enjoy the interactive power point presentations. I use this to introduce or to review a topic. The emphasis is on the meaning of the vocabulary terms.
