Invertebrate Safari

The Land of the Lost Invertebrates

What Makes an Invertebrate an Invertebrate

As we finish our explorations of the elusive invertebrates, students became the scientists in the Land of the Lost Invertebrates. They were met with these curious creatures, rain forest sounds, binoculars and fact cards (another student's animal riddle card.)

Once they explored all of these unique critters they went back to their newly identified animal and presented their findings to their fellow investigators. The results were impressive. All of the animals were correctly identified. 

The students were asked to observe all of the animal inhabitants prior to deciding which animal they were searching for. Clues on the card broke down animal structures, features, habitat, eating habits and more.

Finally, the scientists will work together to determine the traits of these strange lost creatures. I'm sure they will be able to identify the structures, characteristics, environments, eating habits and more of these less familiar inhabitants from our own scientific explorations. In the end, the students will break down mollusks, marine invertebrates, crustaceans, worms, insects and arthropods both myriapods and arachnids. Our study of the invertebrates will be wrapping up shortly!
