Classify living organisms

  1. 1. Using Keys Does it move from one place to another? Animal Plant Does it have flowers? Does it have a back bone? Flowering Non-Flowering Vertebrate Invertebrate Does it give birth to live babies? Has it got a shell? Mammal Does it have feathers? Mollusc Has it got 6 legs? Birds Does it have gills? Insect Arachnid Fish Does it lay eggs in water? Amphibians Reptiles Dr. Sardharwalla July 2011 No Yes NoYes NoYes NoYes NoYes NoYes NoYes No Yes NoYes
  2. 2. Dr. Sardharwalla July 2011 Vertebrates are animals with back bones e.g. Humans, monkey, horse, dog, cat, snake, frog, crocodile, sheep, newt, dolphins, whale, elephant, cow These are subdivided into five classes. Mammals, Birds, Fish, Reptiles, Amphibians Invertebrates are animals without back bones e.g. Butterfly, fly, wasp, bee, snail, slug, octopus, squid, slug, centipede, mosquito, ladybird These are subdivided into three classes. Insects, Arachnids, Molluscs
  3. 3. Dr. Sardharwalla July 2011 Insects are invertebrates They have no backbone They have six legs They have three body parts – head, thorax and abdomen. e.g. bee, fly, wasp, butterfly, mosquito, ladybird Arachnids are invertebrates They have no backbone They have eight legs They have two body parts – head and abdomen e.g. spiders, scorpions
  4. 4. Dr. Sardharwalla July 2011 Molluscs are invertebrates They have no backbone They have a slimy foot They often have a shell e.g. snails, slugs, octopus, squids, Birds are vertebrates They have a backbone They are warm blood They have feathers They have beaks They lay eggs. e.g. Ostrich, chicken, pigeon, sparrow, blackbird
  5. 5. Dr. Sardharwalla July 2011 Fish are vertebrates They have a backbone They are cold blooded They have fins They use gills to breath e.g., cod, eel, goldfish, trout, salmon, plaice, sharks Mammals are vertebrates They have backbone They have lungs They are warm blooded They have mammary glands to feed their babies They give birth to live fully developed babies. e.g. Humans, monkeys, Zebra, dog, mouse, horse, cat, mouse, elephant, Whale, dolphins.
  6. 6. Dr. Sardharwalla July 2011 Reptiles are vertebrates They have back bones They are cold blooded They have scaly skin They live on land They have lungs for breathing They lay eggs. e.g. snake, crocodile, alligator, dinosaur, Amphibians are vertebrates They have backbone They are cold blooded They have slimy wet skin, They can live in water and on land They have lungs e.g. Frogs, newts, toads
  7. 7. Dr. Sardharwalla July 2011 Plants are divided into two groups Flowering Plants Non-flowering plants. Flowering Plants have flowers e.g. roses, apple trees, oak tress, grasses, cereals, daisies, tulips, cherry blossom
  8. 8. Dr. Sardharwalla July 2011 Non-flowering Plants have no flowers e.g. algae (seaweed), fungi (mushrooms, mould), conifers, ferns,
