Great for science students, these printable biology flash cards deal with the genetic structure of insects
There are 36 flash cards in this set (6 pages to print.)
1. Print out the cards.
2. Cut along the dashed lines.
3. Fold along the solid lines.
Sample flash cards in this set:
|animals with no backbone.
|invertebrates that have external skeletons, jointed appendages, and segmented bodies.
|A strong, lightweight outer skeleton made mostly of protein and chitin that provides the arthropod with protection, strength and support.
|A tough material that help make up an arthropod's external skeleton.
|helps insect feel, hear, and taste.
|tiny openings in the insect's abdomen through which air enters the breathing tubes.
|change in form
|going through each stage: egg, larva, pupa, adult
|A type of metamorphosis that goes through these stages: egg, nymph, adult.
|When an insect sheds is exoskeleton during growth.
|Scientist who studies insects
|Active at night
|spider, harvestman, scorpions, ticks, and mites
|The body region of a spider that is like a head and thorax combined.
|Sensitive hairs found on a spider's body that give the spider its sense of touch.
|the breathing organ of a spider; made up of several thin sheets of tissue filled with blood vessels
|The method by which young spiders sail through the air on silk strands that carry them away from their place of birth.
|Tubelike structures in a spider's abdomen that the spider uses to make silk threads.
|The Classification System
|1. Kingdom (animals) 2. Phylum (vertebrates) 3. Class (mammals) 4. Order (Carnivores) 5. Family (felids) 6. Genus (felis) 7. Species (catus)
|Microscopic plants and animals
|Replacement of lost body parts.
|Smallest living unit in any living organism
|3 main parts of plant and animal cells
|1. Cell membrane - surrounds cell and protects it. 2. Cytoplasm - jellylike fluid that fills the cell. 3. Nucleus - located in the center of the cell. Directs the work of the cell.
