Y3 Science & Outdoor learning – types of skeletons

As Scientists, Year 3 found out about the different types of skeletons: vertebrates (back bone) and invertebrates (no back bone).

These skeleton types were further classified into: endoskeletons (back bone and bones in side body), exoskeletons (no backbone and bones outside of body) and hydrostatic skeletons (no bones). We sorted different different animals into these categories and then tried to build a skeleton using a selection of flora (natural resources. Can you guess what any of them are?
