Create a creature

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Have a close look at body parts of small creatures such as a wolf spider, a beetle or a bull ant. Explore descriptions of each body part and its uses. For example, examine a scorpion's long tail to see how it is adapted to stinging prey. Build your own creature. Choose body parts to suit your animal's feeding behaviour, type of movement and habitat. Match body parts for a range of invertebrates. Identify each animal and select which habitat it is best suited to. This learning object is a combination of three objects in the same series.

Students explore the basic features of animals by designing small invertebrates using different body parts.
Students analyse the needs of a small invertebrate and relate them to body structure and function.
