What do you think are some of the phylum classifications in the animal kingdom? How are the animals sorted?
Eukaryotes (have a nucleus) Multicellular Heterotrophs (must consume others) Most reproduce sexually Most can move from place to place
The Animal Kingdom Characteristics
Work together in pairs: What is the cellular organization of animals?
Be able to obtain water, food, and oxygen from their environment Be able to respond to their environment (run away from danger) Most animals have adaptations to meet these needs and to escape predators. Adaptations are behaviors, structures, and functions that allow an organism to survive.
What are the needs of animals?
We have learned about adaptations all year. What are some adaptations you remember or know that animals have to survive?
How do we classify animals?
Animals can be classified into two categories: vertebrates, which have a backbone, and invertebrates, which do not. Vertebrates include mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish. Invertebrates include insects, spiders and worms.

What type of animal is a grizzly bear?
Which classification do humans belong to?
What type of animal is a great white shark?
The bodies of complex animals have either radial or bilateral symmetry. Radial symmetry: Have many lines or symmetry all through a central point Bilateral symmetry: has a line of symmetry that divides it in half like a mirror
Animals have symmetry. What is that?
Let's draw! Who can draw the best examples of bilateral and radial symmetry?
