INVERTEBRATES: ANIMAL UNIT STUDY: READING/WRITING/RESEARCH: 3RD/4TH GRADE

By: Elly Elementary

In a 3rd/4th grade unit on invertebrates, students embark on an exciting journey to explore the diverse world of animals without backbones. Through hands-on activities, engaging experiments, and captivating visuals, they delve into the characteristics, habitats, and adaptations of various invertebrate groups such as insects, arachnids, mollusks, and annelids. They marvel at the intricate structures of butterflies’ wings, observe the intricate web-spinning techniques of spiders, and investigate the slimy yet fascinating world of snails and slugs. As they uncover the vital roles these creatures play in ecosystems and human life, students develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the remarkable diversity of invertebrate life forms around them.

poriferans (sponges), cnidarians (e.g., sea jellies and corals), echinoderms (e.g., sea urchins and sea stars), mollusks (e.g., octopuses, snails, and clams), annelids (worms), and arthropods (e.g., insects, spiders, and crustaceans).
