EDD5161A : Educational Communications and Technology PowerPoint Presentation (Group 8) Classification of Organisms : VERTEBRATES
Animals Invertebrates (animals without backbone) Vertebrates (animals with backbone)
Students Activity Classify the following animals into vertebrates and invertebrates. Vertebrates: Goldfish Snake Humming Bird Invertebrates: Bee Shrimp Earthworm
Examples of Vertebrates (4) What are their general characteristics? l Able to fly l With feathers & beaks l 2 wings & 2 legs l Breathe with lungs l Shelled eggs l Can control body temperature This group of vertebrates is called BIRDS.
Examples of Vertebrates (5) What are their general characteristics? l Live on land, in water or in air. l Body covered with hairs l 4 limbs l Breathe with lungs l With mammary glands for feeding their young l Can control body temperature This group of vertebrates is called MAMMALS.
Classification of Vertebrates Vertebrates ReptilesFishAmphibians Lungs Feathers Cannot control their own body Temperature Can control their own body Temperature beaks mammary glands Scales Fins Gills Eggs Slimy skins, no scales 4 limbs Gills (Larvae) Lungs (Adult) Eggs Shelled- eggs Lungs 4 limbs Dry scales Birds 2 limbs + 2 wings Lungs Shelled- eggs Mammals Hairs 4 limbs Born alive
Students Activity: Which group of vertebrates does the following organisms belong to?
