Indiana Expeditions - Life Cycles (Life Science)

So which came first, the chicken or the egg? Award-winning science teacher and host Rick Crosslin shows you how life, whether it's plants or creatures, is really one endless, fascinating circle! Imagine a seed that grows so fast, it's a full plant in just over a week - and dead less than a month later, right here in Indiana. From insects to people, from seeds to DNA - learn how we are part of the cycles that keep turning 'round and 'round in the world around us.
