Arthropods, Insects, Arachnids, and Crustaceans
In this biology worksheet, learners 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.

Extereme Arthropods: Exploring Evolutionary Adaptations To Polar and Temperate Deserts
Young scholars 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.

Unidentified (Flying?) Arthropods
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.

Arthropods At "Home"
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.

Arthropod Mouth Parts and Food
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.

All About Arthropods
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.

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.

Are You One Of Us?
Students discover how scientists classify things based on their similarities and differences. Students give the characteristics of arthropods and create a classification list. Given examples of various types of arthropods, students classify them according to their characteristics list.

Are You One of Us?
Students investigate how scientists sort and classify organisms. In this sorting and classifying lesson, students examine what systematics are as tools that scientists use. They examine images of invertebrates and sort them while stating their reasons for making the classifications.

Art: Go Ahead and Bug Me!
Young scholars research arthropods, and identify the differences between vertebrates and invertebrates. After comparing and contrasting insects and arachnids, they create drawing of them that are anatomically correct. Students place their arthropods in natural settings.

Centipede or Millipede?
Students discuss millipedes and centipedes in terms of their classification as arthropod. Using a diagram, students categorize and compare and contrast the characteristics of millipedes and centipedes based on their discussion of arthropods.
