  3. 3. Vertebrates VS. Invertebrates • Vertebrate animals • Invertebrate animals do not have a back bone. have a back bone. • There are five • There many types of classifications of invertebrates. The most vertebrates: Fish, common include: the Amphibians, Reptiles, protozoa, Birds, & Mammals. annelids, echinoderms, • These animals have a brain mollusks and arthropods. enclosed in a cranium, a • These animals are closed circulatory system, multicellular. and a heart divided into two, Their cells work together to three, or four chambers. help the animal survive. • Most invertebrates are symmetrical, with the exception of sponges & some coral Click on arrow
  4. 4. Interesting Facts on Vertebrates & Invertebrates • Overall there is an estimated 3-30 million species of animals • Invertebrates include 97% of all known species whereas vertebrates include 3% • Invertebrates were the first animals to evolve. • Insects are the largest group of invertebrates. • Fish easily outnumber all other vertebrates.
  5. 5. TRUE OR FALSE????? 1. There are 4 classifications of vertebrates. TRUE / FALSE 2. Most invertebrates are symmetrical. TRUE / FALSE 3. There are more vertebrate species in the world than there are invertebrate species. TRUE / FALSE 4. Invertebrates were the first animals to evolve. TRUE / FALSE Click the house!
  6. 6. Vertebrate Animals • Fish: The Hammerhead Shark is a type of fish. - They have skin and breathe through their gills. - They are cold blooded. - Size: 13- 20 feet long, 500-1,000 pounds. - Interesting fact: Sharks are immune to cancer. • Amphibians: The Poison Arrow Frog - They have moist skin and breathe through their lungs. - They are cold blooded. - They lay eggs - Size: extremely small: usually ½ inch long - Interesting fact: Poison Arrow Frogs live in the rainforest and are the most poisonous animals in the world.

  9. 9. Invertebrate Animals • Protozoa: The Paramecium - Paramecium can be found in ponds with scum. - It is covered with cilia, which are tiny little hairs that help it move. - The Paramecium eats tiny algae and plants. - Interesting fact: The Paramecium can move in all directions. • Annelids: The Earthworm - Earthworms do not have eyes, but have light-sensitive cells throughout their outer skin. - They can grow anywhere between 90-300 millimeters long. - They have the ability to replace or replicate lost segments. - Interesting fact: In one acre of land, it is likely that there will be more than a million earthworms.
  10. 10. • Echinoderms: The Starfish (Sea Star) - Starfish are spiny, hard-skinned, and live on the rocky sea floor. - They move very slowly along the ocean floor. - Starfish eat clams, oysters, coral, and fish. - Interesting fact: A starfish can turn its stomach inside out. • Mollusks: The Octopus - The Octopus has 8 tentacles & each one has 2 rows of suction cups. - They eat small crabs, scallops, snails, fish, and shrimp. - The Octopus lives on the ocean floor. - Interesting fact: The pupil of an octopus’ eye is rectangular. • Arthropods: The Shrimp - Shrimp are small crustaceans that live on the floor of oceans & lakes. - They have a tough exoskeleton. - Shrimp have 5 pairs of jointed walking legs, 5 pairs of swimming legs, and 3 pairs of maxillae. - Interesting fact: Shrimp’s hearts are in their heads. • Sponges are another type of an invertebrate animal.

  12. 12. Conclusion I found this project very beneficial. I had never made a Non-linear PowerPoint until this class. I enjoyed learning new techniques on PowerPoint that can help me in the future as an educator. While researching I came across some great websites! Enchantedlearning.com is such a great website for elementary students to learn more about nature, history, just about everything! I will keep this in mind for when I am a teacher and looking for worksheets or other activities. Overall I had a great experience with this project! I love animals so I thought this would be the perfect topic for me! References • Enchanted learning: biology. (1996-2007).
