1 Unit 4, Lesson 6

2  A series of distinct growth stages in an animal’s life cycle that are different from one another.

3  A series of four distinct growth stages in an animal’s life cycle.  Egg, larva, pupa, adult

4  An immature stage in complete metamorphosis where the organism does not resemble the adult

5  A non-feeding stage in complete metamorphosis in which a hard, case-like cocoon surround the organism

6  A series of three growth stages that occur gradually  Egg, nymph, adult

7  A stage of metamorphosis where the organism is similar to an adult form but is smaller

8  Larva

9  The organism gets bigger but keeps the same basic shape and form

10  Complete metamorphosis has 4 distinct stages, while the incomplete metamorphosis has only 3 distinct stages.

11  Most tadpoles are herbivores, or plant eaters

12  Frog eggs are laid in the water. If tadpoles hatched with lungs rather than gills, they would not be able to breathe.  Tadpoles are completely aquatic for the first part of their lives

13  It moves onto land  Breathes air  Begins meat eating diet

14  The shell keeps the embryo from drying out.  The yolk provides food for the developing embryo.

15  It is protected by a jellylike layer that surrounds the egg

16  Butterflies  Moths  Flies  Beetles

17  Grasshoppers  Termites  Bedbugs

18  In incomplete metamorphosis, the nymph stage is the same as the larva stage in a complete metamorphosis, and the pupa stage is skipped.

19  Grasshoppers have an exoskeleton

20  Amphibians go through metamorphosis, but other vertebrate do not.

21  Animals have different eggs depending on their structures and the environments in which they live.

22  Monotremes are the only mammals that lay eggs.
