A web site accompanies the printed resource.

This resource includes Plants for Products, a specially produced website with interactive activities, video clips and materials to download and use in the classroom.

There are activities to help children to understand how these issues impact upon their own lives and information to help teachers to understand more about renewable resources, how to introduce these new ideas to their class and get children talking about the reasons for understanding why this is important.
