  9. 9. • Shrimp are small animals that live on the floor of oceans. There are over 2,000 different species of shrimp worldwide. Shrimp are invertebrates (animals lacking a backbone) that have a tough exoskeleton. • Diet: Shrimp are omnivores; they eat plants and small animals. • Life Cycle: Female shrimp lay over a thousand eggs, which are attached to her swimming legs.
  10. 10. The unusual pistol shrimp kills or stuns its prey by making a very loud sound with a huge claw with a moveable, snapping appendage.
  11. 11. • Crustaceans are a group of animals that have a hard exoskeleton, jointed legs, and a segmented body. • Crustaceans are invertebrates (they lack a backbone)). Most crustaceans live in water, but some live on land. Crustaceans are the most numerous animals in the oceans, but some crustaceans live on fresh water. Some Characteristics of Crustaceans: • A hard exoskeleton made of calcium - no internal skeleton. • The head has two compound eyes, two pairs of antennae, and three pairs of mouthparts. • A pair of green glands excrete wastes near the base of antennae. • The abdominal segments have swimmerets (swimming legs) • The sexes are separate. Eggs are attached to the swimmerets (swimming legs) of the female. • The circulatory system is open; there is no heart and the "blood" is pumped by vessels into sinuses, and does not flow in a closed loop.
  12. 12. • Lobsters are invertebrates, animals without a backbone. • Lobsters are cold-blooded; their body temperature depends on the temperature of the water. • Diet: Lobsters are carnivores. Most lobsters are nocturnal. They are predators that eat crabs, clams, worms, snails, mussels, flounder, and other lobsters. • Lobsters continue to grow throughout their lives. As a lobster grows, it often molts. It eats the old shell. • The biggest lobster caught weighed over 44 pounds. • Lobsters may live to be 100 years old.
  13. 13. Fish Fortune Teller
  14. 14. Turn the colored side down and the white side up. Fold the paper in half so you have a triangle. Then unfold it and refold it the other way.
  15. 15. Cut the small dotted lines between the white fortune triangles, the ones that go halfway to the center. Do not cut all the way to the center!
  16. 16. Fold the corners to the center, one by one. Like this:
  17. 17. Flip the square over, so that you see the fortune side:
  18. 18. Then fold each tip into the center.
  19. 19. Now fold your square in half into two rectangles. Then unfold it and fold it in half into two rectangles the other way.
  20. 20. With the numbered side up, put one of your hands into the underside while pushing up a little. Once you get one hand into two of the slots of the underside, place your other hand in the other two slots and push up again.
