      • An insect is a very small animal with certain characteristics
      • Most insects walk, but some can fly or jump
      Quit The Basics
    • Insect Characteristics
      • All Insects have an exoskeleton
      • They have three main body parts: thorax , abdomen , and head
      • Insects also have a pair of antennae on the top of their heads
      • Insects have compound eyes, three pairs of legs and many have two pairs of wings, but not all
      Quit
    • Vocabulary
      • Abdomen – the posterior (farthest to the rear) section of an insect’s body
      • Antennae – little feelers on top of the insect’s head that help them receive messages, sound, and motion
      • Thorax – the middle section of an insect’s body
      Quit
    • Vocabulary continued
      • Invertebrate – animals that do not have a backbone. The exoskeleton is the reason insects do no need a backbone.
      • Exoskeleton – the hard shell-like covering on the outside of the body
      Quit
    • Vocabulary continued
      • Arthropods - any invertebrate animal with an exoskeleton and segmented body, and jointed appendages in pairs
      • Arachnids – any various arthropod that has four pairs of segmented legs, and a body divided into two regions
      Quit
    • Different Kinds of Insects
      • Ants, Grasshoppers, Butterflies, Beetles, and Spiders are a few of the insects you are probably familiar with
      • There are over 700,000 different species of insects that are known, and still more are being discovered
      Quit
      • These species are categorized into a large group called Arthropods
      • Spiders and scorpions are placed into a group called Arachnids inside of the Arthropods
      Quit Species
    • Size Doesn’t Matter
      • Most insects are quite small, but this doesn’t mean they are at a disadvantage
      • An ant is able to carry 20 or more times its own weight, and the bumblebee can carry up to 300 times its own weight!
      Quit
    • The Life of an Insect
      • Insects still need food, water, and air to live just like we do
      • The life span of an insect however, depending on the type, can range from one day to fifty years!
      Quit
    • Insects in Motion
