Abstract:

This film introduces children to an animal usually overlooked in nature studies : the slug - the shell-less snail - the slimy yucky animal we don't want to touch or see. Related to the ordinary garden slug (invertebrate mollusks), this is the Giant Banana Slug, a vital link in the chain of life in western North American forests. Designed to encourage young children to examine nature closely, the film joins youngsters on a walk in California's redwood forests where they share their feelings on encountering this unusual wild animal. The film shows the children's frist reactions when they touch the slimy body, and then as they learn more we see them beginning to admire the gentle slugs. The film will make children laugh and will show them a unique life form, while dramatically demonstrating how knowledge and understanding change attitudes.
