Week beginning 11th May - VERTEBRATES & INVERTEBRATES

Animals can be classified as either vertebrates or invertebrates.

Vertebrates are animals that have a backbone inside their body. The major groups include fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.







Invertebrates don't have a backbone. They either have a soft body, like worms and jellyfish, or a hard outer casing covering their body, like spiders and crabs.

          Please complete tasks 1 & 2 to find out more about vertebrates and invertebrates.
