Identify and list the characteristics of a mouse that make it a member of the animal kingdom.
It is a multicellular heterotroph, moves to get food, and has cells without cell walls.
Explain why movement is an important characteristic of animals.
Animals must search for food and mates.
Compare and contrast a protostome and a deuterostome.
Protostomes: the mouth develops from the opening in the gastrula; deuterostomes: the mouth develops elsewhere on the gastrula
Identify cell differentiation in the development of an animal.
Ectoderm: skin and the nervous system; Endoderm- digestive organs and the digestive tract’s lining; Mesoderm: muscles, the circulatory, and excretory systems, and in some animals, the respiratory system
Describe gastrulation.
Gastrulation occurs when cells of the blastula move inward and form an indentation on the surface of the blastula. It is now called a gastrula. (like pottery)
Name a land animal that is sessile. Why would this adaptation be a disadvantage to an animal in a land biome?
Scale insects mature as sessile animals after they pierce plant tissues with their mouths to feed on plant liquids. A sessile land animal could not locate a mate or find more food if its current food source disappeared.
Make a concept map of animal development using the following stages, beginning with the earliest stage: gastrula, larva, adult, fertilized egg, blastula
fertilized egg--->blastula----> gastrula---> larva---> adult
organism that is permanently attached to a surface.
sessile
hollow ball of cells in a layer surrounding a fluid-filled space; an animal embryo after cleavage but before the formation of the gastrula.
blastula
animal embryo development stage where cells on one side of the blastula move inward forming a cavity of two or three layers of cells with an opening at one end.
gastrula
layer of cells on the outer surface of the gastrula; eventually develops into the skin and nervous tissue of an animal.
ectoderm
layer of cells on the inner surface of the gastrula; will eventually develop into the lining of the animal's digestive tract and organs associated with digestion.
endoderm
middle cell layer in the gastrula, between the ectoderm and the endoderm; develops into the muscles, circulatory system, excretory system, and in some animals, the respiratory system.
mesoderm
animal with a mouth that develops from the opening in the gastrula.
protostome
animal whose mouth develops from cells other than those at the opening of the gastrula.
deuterostome
