For this segmented worms worksheet, students will review the characteristics of segmented worms including the earthworm, bristleworm, and leech. This worksheet has 7 fill in the blank, 3 true or false, and 3 matching questions.
In this segmented worms instructional activity, students will use a diagram of a segmented worm to complete 4 short answer questions about its body parts and structures.
Animals without Backbones
Students study animal characteristics and identify animals. In this classification lesson students examine the different invertebrates and explain their habitats. this lesson is detailed with many activities that may be split to cover multiple lessons
Comparative anatomy prevails in the lesson exploring diversity among invertebrates. Biologists examine physical characteristics of an earthworm from phylum annelida and a meal worm from phylum insecta. They also inspect a cricket and a crayfish, both arthropods, but from different classes. Plenty of direction, space for recording observations, and follow-up questions make this handout a thorough investigation of invertebrates for middle or high school biology classes, especially when studying classification.
Earthworms and Making a Wormery
Students explore the environment by researching insects. In this earthworm lesson, students utilize soil and plexiglass to build a see through wormery in which students can observe the worms at work. Students identify the benefits of earthworms and how they are essential to our agricultural food system.
High schoolers use animation to create their own earthworm catching and eating its prey. They must draw storyboards before they start on the animation.
Seventh graders study earthworms and how the exotic species affect forest ecosystems and nutrient cycling. In this ecosystems lesson plan students go into the field and take samples using a dichotomous key.
Earthworms in Soil
Students discover the importance of earthworms. In this earthworm lesson, students observe and discuss what they think earthworms are good for when in the soil. Students then listen to a book on earthworms and discuss the true importance of an earthworm.
Worms Crawl In and Do Lots of Things
Students observe the aquatic segmented worm, Lumbriculus varigatus and the life processes. They explore the processes of nutririon, transport, regulation, locomotion, and removal of wastes.
Mollusks and Segmented Worms
In this mollusks and segmented worms worksheet, students read information about these two groups of organisms and compare and contrast their general characteristics. This worksheet has 2 short answer questions.
Observing Mealworms & Earthworms
Fifth graders build worm habitats and observe the activities of mealworms and earthworms. They experiment to show how the worms react to changes in light, temperature, touch, moisture, food, etc. They even watch as some of the mealworms change into beetles.
The Animals Kingdom
Students are introduced to the classification system of animals. In groups, they set up an aquarium in which they must maintain throughout the year. They also observe earthworms and how they react to various stimuli and research the characteristics of arthropods. To end the lesson, they focus on one phylum of animals and present their information to the class.
Students identify the external features of the earthworm. They view a video about different features of an earthworm. They research information about annelids on the Internet. They compare and contrast the earthworm with another annelid.
Mollusks and Segmented Worms
Keep clam and read on! After reading the textbook selection about mollusks and worms in the additional materials section, your young zoologists check their comprehension by answering the questions on the handout found here. To differentiate, groups could jigsaw the reading and share information with each other to complete the worksheet.
What is an Earthworm Like?
Second graders study earthworms. In this science instructional activity, 2nd graders observe an earthworm using a magnifying lens, draw pictures of the earthworm, and record their observations.
What Would Happen?
Nothing says classroom fun like an invertebrate and a magnifying glass! Snails, earthworms, and roly-poly bugs become the center of attention as pint-sized investigators hone their inquiry and observation skills. They are guided through the inquiry process with a series of "What if?" questions, intended to get them thinking like scientists, by making predictions and testing their hypotheses. The result is an experiment and a class discussion. Tip: Use visual scientific journals to help learners develop early writing and data collection skills.
Meeting an Earthworm
Students inspect the anatomy of earthworms. In this earthworm instructional activity, students participate in a hands-on experiment as they analyze the structure of earthworms. Students demonstrate mastery through differentiated products. Lesson references a worksheet not available in this resource.
Identifying an Earthworm
Students navigate the Internet to learn to identify Earthworms. For this taxonomy lesson, students explore species of earthworms finding their characteristics and using photographs to identify the species. Students research information to enable them to catch and classify earthworms.
Those Amazing Earthworms-The Worm's World
Students investigate the importance of the earthworm to our world. In this earthworm lesson, students gain information about the important role earthworms play to keeping our soil healthy. Students participate in an experiment where they put earthworms, soil and food items in a jar to see what they worms do with the food item. Students record their daily observations and answer questions about what they observed.
Inquiry: You are an earthworm
Sixth graders work in groups to create questions an earthworm might ask about its life. In this earthworm lesson, 6th graders examine earthworms and their function as soil conservationists. Students become familiar with the scientists that study earthworms.
