Hello! This week we will be reviewing and completing our Animal Projects. Their final assessment will take place on Tuesday, November 13th after the long break.

Student’s folders along with posts on this webpage will be helpful in review.

Students will need to know:

The difference between a vertebrate and invertebrate.

Give one example of each of the following types of animals and describe at least one characteristics of it.

(Mammals, Amphibians, Reptiles, Birds, Fish)

Fill in the life cycle diagram for one of the following

( Butterfly, Mammals, Amphibians, Reptiles, Birds, Fish)

  • Look at the two life cycles in your science duotang

Describe how animals care for their babies/young?

Describe an animal that takes excellent care of their young.

Describe an animal that does not take care of their young.

Human babies rely heavily on their parents. Babies cannot feed themselves, hydrate themselves, or even clean themselves. Remember that all mammals rely on milk from their parent. Human babies rely on milk from their mothers as their main source of food. They also rely on their parents to keep safe, and to keep clean. Just like human babies, most young rely on their parents for milk (food) and for protection. It’s not just mammals, though. There are many reptiles, amphibians, birds and even insects that provide their babies with food and protection.

Amazing Animal Parents

While many animals DO provide care to their babies and young, there are many invertebrates, and some vertebrates, who do not provide any prenatal care at all. Most species of fish simply release their egg in the water, and have nothing to do with the offspring. Some species of cuckoo birds and ducks drop their eggs in the nests of other birds, for those other birds to raise their young.







What is a Habitat and what is one example of a habitat that animals live in?

Habitats we have covered: Desert, Ocean, Forest, Garden, Arctic, and City.

What is an example of an animal that has gone extinct? How did it go extinct?
