Use this amazing package of resources to introduce students to arthropods: insects, spiders, crustaceans, and more! Audio files, video files, and presentations included with your materials make presenting information to a variety of students fun and easy.
Images and a PowerPoint™ presentation introduce arthropods
, the most numerous animal on the planet. Then, sort animals
by one rule and two rules to practice comparing and contrasting arthropods with amphibians, reptiles, birds, marine mammals, and land mammals.
Read a short text
saved in three reading levels in English and two in Spanish or listen to recordings of the essays included in your zip file. An introductory PowerPoint™ presentation
has been saved as a movie for students who benefit from seeing the information more than once.
Choose from four assessment options
that make it easy to assess student understanding: a quick assessment, a pencil-and-paper assessment, a suggestion for the struggling student, and a suggestion for a capable student.
Scale images of arthropods up, color, cut, and staple to create a swarm.
Create a book about arthropods. Introductory essays saved in English and Spanish help students get started. Pages with an outline of the animal to color and lines for text help students create their pages.
Move like an arthropod. Brainstorm how animals move, watch several short videos, and then run relay races like an arthropod.
