Topics and concepts covered include:
- Introduction to the Phylum Porifera: List of animals belonging to Phylum Porifera, the appearance of poriferans on Planet Earth, number of species, and locations of habitats.
- What is a Sponge? Definitions of Porifera, invertebrate, and sessile; embryonic development of sponges; reasons why sponges are classified as animals.
- The Body Plan of Poriferans: Asymmetry, germ layers, mesoglea, central cavity.
- External View of Sponge: Students will label the external structures of a sponge, including the osculum, spicules, buds, ostia, and base. Definitions and functions of all structures are included.
- Internal View of Sponge: Students will label a drawing that includes the osculum, ostia, central cavity, choanocytes, bud, epidermal cells, pore cells, mesoglea, and amebocytes. Definitions and functions of all structures are included.
- Feeding and Digestion in Poriferans
- Respiration, Circulation, and Excretion in Poriferans
- Asexual Reproduction: Definitions and explanations of budding, gemmules, and regeneration; advantages and disadvantages of asexual reproduction.
- Sexual Reproduction in Poriferans: Explanation of the process, as well as the advantages of sexual reproduction; hermaphroditism.
- Introduction to Cnidarians: List of animals belonging to Phylum Cnidaria, germ layers of cnidarians, reasons why cnidarians are more advanced than poriferans, radial symmetry, cnidocytes.
- The Cnidarian Body Plan: Comparison of medusa and polyp body plans, gastrodermis and gastrovascular cavity. Students will compare structures of the medusa and the polyp and will label the mouth, tentacles, epidermis, gastrodermis, mesoglea, and gastrovascular cavity in each.
- Feeding and Defense in Cnidarian: Cnidocytes and nematocysts, method of food-getting.
- Cnidarian Nervous System: Discuss of the nerve net and how it functions.
- Cnidarian Respiration, Circulation, and Excretion
- Classification of Cnidarians: Includes 4 classes of cnidarians – Hydrozoa, Cubozoa, Scyphozoa, and Anthozoa.
- Class Hydrozoa: Includes details of the freshwater hydra and the Portuguese man-of-war. Students will label a drawing of the hydra that includes tentacles, mouth, epidermis, gastrodermis, mesoglea, bud, base, gastrovascular cavity, testes, sperm, ovary, and egg. Asexual and sexual reproduction of hydra is discussed.
- Class Cubozoa: The box jellies are briefly discussed.

- Class Anthozoa: Includes details on sea anemones, the mutualistic relationship between anemones and clownfish, details about corals, and the mutualistic relationship between corals and the algae that live within them.
- Ecology of the Corals: Reasons why corals are important to marine ecosystems, the impact of human activities on coral reefs, and coral bleaching.
- Phylum Ctenophora (comb jellies) is briefly discussed.
