In this biology worksheet, learners color and label the different parts of arthropods. They complete 63 short answer and fill in the blank questions on arthropods.
Arthropods are the stars of a fine science lesson. Learners look at the diversity, characteristics, adaptations, and important roles that these insects play in the Sonoran Desert environment. A terrific document called "Amazing Arthropods" is embedded in the lesson, which is read and completed before the class goes outside to find examples of arthropods on the school campus. 
In this arthropods worksheet, learners read a detailed text about insects, arachnids and crustaceans. Students then complete 14 multiple choice and fill in the blank questions.
In this biology worksheet, students read about arthropods and some of the different species that fit into this classification. They then answer 13 questions about what they just learned. The answers are on the last page of the packet.
Students investigate arthropods from bothe places, creating "toolboxes" necessary for survival in extreme environments. They work in small groups to design imaginary arthropods that are able to survive in either Antarctica or Namibia. Students use evolutionary "toolboxes" to pick out appropriate adaptations for actual Namib and Antarctic arthropods, using a menu of authentic names, adaptations and photos.
Students design a habitat for an arthropod. In this organisms lesson, students read the book, A House is a House For Me. Students find an arthropod and create a terrarium.
Beginning biologists learn the characteristics of the five classes in the arthropod phylum. A student handout lists characteristics to help them identify five specimens. You will need to collect an example of each: arachnida, crustacea, diplopoda, chilopoda, and insecta. This exploration can be used with a wide range of age groups.
In this amazing arthropods instructional activity, students read for information and assess comprehension. In this true and false, fill in the bank, multiple choice and short answer instructional activity, students write answers to ten questions.
In this arthropod worksheet, students compare and contrast the different animals found in the Phylum Arthropoda: insects, arachnids, and crustaceans. Students complete 8 fill in the blank statements and color illustrations.
In this arthropods learning exercise, students read rhymes about arthropods and use the science terms they have learned to answer the question following the rhyme. This learning exercise has 12 fill in the blank questions.
Students discover what an arthropod is and how they survive in our world.  In this insect lesson, students read the book, A House Is A House For Me, and compare a home for a person with the type of habitat an arthropod lives in.  Students attend a field trip looking for the insects in the outdoors, recording what they find as the day goes on.
In this arthropods instructional activity, students will review arthropod exoskeletons, jointed appendages, molting, and types of respiratory structures. Students will also review arthropod senses, body systems, and reproduction. This instructional activity has 6 short answer, 3 fill in the blank, 8 matching, and 5 true or false questions.
Students identify the different types of mouths arthropods have for eating various types of food. Given photographs of the different types of arthropods, students identify which mouth they have and what type of food they can eat with their mouth. Vocabulary and a worksheet with answer key is included.
Third graders sort and classify the four Arthropod classes. They are given puzzle pieces of one Arthropod example. Each group is to put their puzzle together, glue it on a piece of construction paper and label the ir puzzle.
Use a dichotomous key to classify these squirmy bugs. A paragraph provides fifth graders with some background knowledge on the animal kingdom, and explains how to use a branching key for classification. They then determine which bugs could be described as arthropods. For an extended lesson, kids create their own keys to classify utensils. 
A set of note-taking slides introduces your biologists to the characteristics and the four subphyla of arthropods. Nothing flashy is included, but it is a tidy and straightforward presentation that you can use when your class is studying animal classification. 
In this arthropods worksheet, students complete a graphic organizer by reading characteristics of the different classes or subphylum and writing in examples for each of these groups.
Learn all about echinoderms and arthropods through the attached reading, complete with stunning photographs and review questions; keep track of the key concepts using the handout. For kids with a lower reading level, consider projecting the reading and going over it together as a class. Although the worksheet refers to a different reading, the included selection answers all of the questions and more.
Students investigate arthropods in leaf litter.  In this fourth through ninth grade science/math instructional activity, students count and sort the species of arthropods found in leaf litter.  Students calculate percentages and create a circle graph of their data.
Tenth graders participate in an arthropod scavenger hunt. In groups of two, they identify and collect two specimens of arthropods in the school area, and create a table of all the specimens and what class they belong to.
