  2. 2. Menu <ul><li>Vertebrates VS. Invertebrates </li></ul><ul><li>Vertebrate Animals </li></ul><ul><li>Invertebrate Animals </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusion & References </li></ul>
  3. 3. Vertebrates VS. Invertebrates <ul><li>Vertebrate animals have a back bone. </li></ul><ul><li>There are five classifications of vertebrates: Fish, Amphibians, Reptiles, Birds, & Mammals. </li></ul><ul><li>These animals have a brain enclosed in a cranium, a closed circulatory system, and a heart divided into two, three, or four chambers. </li></ul><ul><li>Invertebrate animals do not have a back bone. </li></ul><ul><li>There many types of invertebrates. The most common include: the protozoa, annelids, echinoderms, mollusks and arthropods. </li></ul><ul><li>These animals are multicellular. Their cells work together to help the animal survive. </li></ul><ul><li>Most invertebrates are symmetrical, with the exception of sponges & some coral </li></ul>Click on arrow
  4. 4. Interesting Facts on Vertebrates & Invertebrates <ul><li>Invertebrates include 97 % of all known species whereas vertebrates include 3 % </li></ul><ul><li>Overall there is an estimated 3-30 million species of animals </li></ul><ul><li>Invertebrates were the first animals to evolve. </li></ul><ul><li>Insects are the largest group of invertebrates. </li></ul><ul><li>Fish easily outnumber all other vertebrates. </li></ul>
  5. 5. TRUE OR FALSE ????? <ul><li>There are 4 classifications of vertebrates. TRUE / FALSE </li></ul><ul><li>Most invertebrates are symmetrical. TRUE / FALSE </li></ul><ul><li>There are more vertebrate species in the world than there are invertebrate species. TRUE / FALSE </li></ul><ul><li>Invertebrates were the first animals to evolve. TRUE / FALSE </li></ul>Click the house!

I enjoyed learning new techniques on PowerPoint that can help me in the future as an educator. While researching I came across some great websites! Enchantedlearning.com is such a great website for elementary students to learn more about nature, history, just about everything! I will keep this in mind for when I am a teacher and looking for worksheets or other activities. Overall I had a great experience with this project! I love animals so I thought this would be the perfect topic for me!
