Here we are at a new month and it's time to change our topic We'll learn about Invertebrates this month. We'll add in lots of fun summer reading, some songs, and lots of arts and crafts.
Scientists divide animals into 2 main groups (Vertebrates and Invertebrates).
Vertebrates are animals with a backbone. This group is subdivided into 5 classes:
All other animals are Invertebrates (no backbone).
This month we will learn about the following Invertebrate groups:
- Have children brainstorm and share what they already know about invertebrates and what they want to learn. You can download a KWL Chart from our website to fill out with the students. Click on the link below then at the website click on free worksheets
- Watch this cute video about Vertebrates and Invertebrates presently on You Tube.
- Have the kids pull out all their invertebrate animal books and invertebrate stuffed animals and get ready for a month of fun learning about these extremely interesting animals with no backbones.
