Invertebrates are animals that do not have a backbone or a spinal column. They make up about 97% of all animal species on Earth. Examples of invertebrates include insects, spiders, worms, and jellyfish.

Vertebrates, on the other hand, are animals that have a backbone or a spinal column. They make up about 3% of all animal species on Earth. Examples of vertebrates include mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish.

Now, let’s move on to the main activity. We will be using a PowerPoint presentation and watching some videos to learn more about invertebrates and vertebrates. The videos can be found at the following links: - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sr_T4skBYNo - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R50Xc1EUHwg

After watching the videos, we will be doing a hands-on activity. High-achieving and middle-achieving students will be cutting and sticking pictures of animals onto a worksheet. They will then need to split the animals into vertebrates and invertebrates and write an explanation in their exercise books. This will help them practice categorizing animals based on their skeletal structure.

For the lower-achieving students, they will also be cutting and sticking pictures of animals onto the worksheet. However, they will only need to split the animals into vertebrates and invertebrates. This activity will still help them practice categorization skills.

The resources you will need for this lesson are the PowerPoint presentation, the x-ray worksheet, and the students’ exercise books.

Now, let’s see if any of you already know what invertebrate and vertebrate mean. Raise your hand if you have an idea.

Lesson 6: Skeleton - Vertebrates and Invertebrates

Introduction:
Start with a quick quiz to see what the students remember.
High-achieving and middle-achieving students will fill in the blanks.
Lower-achieving students will match nutrients to their functions.

Main Activity:
1. Show a PowerPoint presentation and watch videos about invertebrates and vertebrates. You can find the videos here:
- Video 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sr_T4skBYNo
- Video 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R50Xc1EUHwg

2. Hands-on activity:
- High-achieving and middle-achieving students will cut out pictures of animals and sort them into vertebrates and invertebrates. They will then write an explanation in their exercise books.
- Lower-achieving students will also cut out pictures of animals and sort them into vertebrates and invertebrates.

Resources:
- PowerPoint presentation
- X-ray worksheet
- Exercise books

Discussion:
Ask the students if they know what invertebrate and vertebrate mean.
