Gotta Eat! and Classifying Organisms – Crash Course Kids

Why do we eat and how does what we eat help classify what we are? In these first two episodes from Crash Course Kids, Sabrina Cruz explains why all living things eat. Also, try the simple energy source experiment in episode 1.1: Growing two lima beans with one difference between their food supplies.

Above: Gotta Eat! Below: Plants, herbivores, omnivores, carnivores… Feed Me: Classifying Organisms.
