Show 1208 Animals – Invertebrates – Arthropods – Insects
Our next classification of animals is insects. These are invertebrates which mean they do not have backbone but they are arthropods which mean they have a hard exoskeleton or tough coating on the outside of their body. Their body has 3 parts: the head, thorax and abdomen. Insects have 3 pairs of jointed legs, compound eyes and 2 antennae or feelers and also one or two pairs of wings. Insects are cold blooded and many have a life cycle called metamorphosis. Some insects that you might have seen are: crickets, wasps, bees, grasshoppers, beetles, moths, and flies but there are thousands more. Our first project is a clay dragonfly with great iridescent wings. Then, make a personal mouse pad by creating your own butterfly stamps. Next, itís a giant Styrofoam ant. And last, we have a cute bumblebee made from felt.
