For hands-on activities involving snails, insects, squid, and starfish that connect science with real life, chooseAnimals without Backbones.

This book, designed with good science and easy teaching in mind, covers these concepts:

  • animals without backbones are called invertebrates
  • invertebrates are classified by their body characteristics
  • most kinds of invertebrates live in the ocean
  • invertebrates have developed different ways of acquiring food
  • invertebrates' movements are adapted to the animals' needs
  • invertebrates have developed many forms of self-defense
  • some invertebrates build homes
  • Activities help children practice skills in:
    • observation, analysis and communication
    • making comparisons and prediction
    • critical thinking and recording

    Areas of study address major themes such as: change, structure, function, diversity, and cause and effect.

    Samples of the hands-on learning experiences:
    • observe and record information about invertebrates

    • _spiders, ants, earthworms and snails
    • examine shells and exoskeletons of ocean invertebrates
    • raise mealworms to observe a complete metamorphosis
    • experiment to find out what kind of foods ants prefer
    • design an insect that is camouflaged to "hide" in the classroom
    Contains many reproducible, ready-to-go resources, such as:
    • record sheets
    • logbook forms
    • minibooks
    • picture cards
    Illustrated throughout with fun, yet accurate animal line art.
