1 Animals as Living Things Vocabulary Grade 4

2 An animal with a backbone is called a vertebrate. A bird is a vertebrate. A human is a vertebrate.

3 Vertebrates are classified by how they control their body temperature. Cold blooded vertebrates (fish, amphibians, and reptiles) get heat from outside the body. Warm blooded vertebrates (birds and mammals) use energy from food to keep body temperature constant.

4 An animal without a backbone is called an invertebrate. A worm is an invertebrate. An octopus is an invertebrate.

5 Cnidarians are invertebrates that have poison stingers on tentacles. Three types of cnidarians are Hydra Jellyfish Sea anemones

6 Mollusks are soft bodied invertebrates. Examples of mollusks are Snails Clams Oysters squids

7 Echinoderms are spiny skinned invertebrates. Echinoderms are identified by A star design Spiny skin An internal supporting structure called an endoskeleton.

8 Arthropods make up the largest invertebrate group. Arthropods are identified by a hard skeleton on the outside of their bodies called an exoskeleton. Examples are Arachnids Centipedes and millipedes Crustaceans Insects
