Animals without Backbones: The Invertebrate Story. Grade Level 5-9.
Jerome, Brian; Fuqua, Paul
This guide, when used in tandem with the videotape "Animals Without Backbones," helps students learn about invertebrates. These materials promote hands-on discovery and learning. The guide is composed of six curriculum-based teaching units: (1) "Getting Started"; (2) "Porifera"; (3) "Cnidarians"; (4) "Worms"; (5) "Mollusks"; (6) "Arthropods"; and (7) "Echinoderms." Each unit includes a list of printed resources and internet addresses to help students search for more information about invertebrates. There are four main features in this guide: teacher information, teacher-directed activities, student information, and student activities. Appendices include a list of science equipment suppliers, the videotape script, answers to student activities, and two videotape quizzes. (CCM)
