5. Fish
The animal kingdom is divided into two main groups
1. vertebrates
2. invertebrates

What do you think is the difference between vertebrates and invertebrates? (Hint: Think about the names of bones we have looked at)
Vertebrates have a backbone (spine)
Invertebrates are animals WITHOUT a backbone
In 2 minutes how many invertebrates can you think of?
Can you think what these
five groups are???
Give birth to live young.
Feed their babies with their own milk.
Are more or less covered with hair.
Are warm-blooded.

How many mammals can you think of?
Did you get any of these?


Did you know that the blue whale is the largest animal that has ever lived, including all the dinosaurs. Some blue whales have been known to grow to 33.5 metres and weigh over 2 tonnes (that`s 20,000kg)!!!!
What features do you think only birds have?
What features are unique to birds?
Have feathers
Lay eggs
Are warm blooded
Did you know?
The earliest known bird, Archaeopteryx lithographica, lived about 150 million years ago
Did you know
There are nearly 9,900 species of birds alive today
In one minute how many types of birds can you name?
Are cold-blooded.
Lay eggs.
Have a dry skin covered with scales.

How many different reptiles can you name?
Did you get any of these?

Quick Quiz!

Can you name all of the main features of mammals, birds and reptiles?

What is the biggest animal that has ever lived?

Which other types of vertebrates lay eggs?
Amphibians are divided into 3 groups
Newts and salamanders

Have a moist skin covered in scales.
Breathe through gills.

Which other types of vertebrates have scales?
Quick Quiz

True or false. The spine is one long bone?
False The spine is made up of lots of smaller bones called vertebrae.
Having vertebrae is helpful for big animals.
Allows them to have complicated nervous system
Allows better developed brains
Allows better developed senses such as eyes
Invertebrates find it useful to NOT have a spine because:
It allows them greater movement. For example a bee finds it useful to be able to bend more when going into a flower
Some animals such as beetles find it useful to have an
(A skeleton on the outside). This is like a hard protective shell around the body.
An animal with a skeleton on the inside has an
. Humans have an endoskeleton.
What is the difference between an endoskeleton and an exoskeleton?
is a skeleton on the outside that supports and protects an animal's body. An
is an internal skeleton (like a human's).

Some animals, such as the tortoise, have both an endoskeleton and an exoskeleton. Many of the larger kinds of exoskeletons are known as "shells".
