Science – Amazing Animals – Spring 2022

Skeletons

In our Amazing Animals Science topic, we have been looking at skeletons of humans and animals. There are two types of skeleton, endoskeletons like ours which are made of bones inside the body, and exoskeletons like a crabs, which is made of chitin on the outside of the body. Animals can also be divided into vertebrates, with a backbone, and invertebrates, which do not have one. We sorted some animal pictures into vertebrates and invertebrates, and also wrote an Endoskeleton vs Exoskeleton comparison.
