This week we are going to do a class project on vertebrates! Do you know what vertebrates are? For all of you who don’t know, vertebrates are an animal of a large group distinguished by the possession of a backbone or spinal column, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fishes.
There are tons of vertebrates that we see on a daily basis. Pets are a classic example! Below are some classic images of vertebrates that are pets that you all can relate to, such as a dog(woof) or a cat(meow).
Now lets look at some other classic examples of vertebrates. Explore the page by clicking here to find out tons of other examples of vertebrates we are going to talk about in this weeks project! There are fun facts, examples, definitions, and classifications we are going to use in this weeks project. Please be sure to do your homework and look at all these fun examples!
