JBHA 7 Arthropod Lab Name________________


Create a Model or Design an Illustration (drawing) of an Arthropod which could fit into any real or imaginary environment, such as one which can live under water and also fly; one which would live on mars, or in the ocean on the moon of Jupiter called Europa; or one of your choice.

  1. To which class does your arthropod belong?

  2. What are the scientific and common names of your new arthropod? Be creative, but use names that describe your arthropod well.

  3. Describe its natural habitat.

  4. How many appendages does it have? What are they specialized for?

  5. Does your arthropod have spiracles? Where are they located?

  6. Does your arthropod have antennae? What are they used for?

  7. What does it eat? Is it a carnivore, herbivore, or omnivore?

  8. Describe the changes your Arthropod goes through during its life cycle. Draw and label its complete life cycle.

  9. What are some of the specific adaptations that your Arthropod has and how does that help it in its particular environment?

  10. Is your arthropod harmful or useful to the environment? Explain your answer

Or go to the Reference Links below and briefly describe each of the following:

    Joint-legged animals without backbones are called arthropods and are placed in the phylum Arthropoda. Human legs are jointed at the knees

  2. Arthropods
    Arthropods are animals with segmented bodies and six or more jointed legs. They are the largest animal group

  3. Images of Arthropods
    A great selection Arthropod Images

  4. Introduction to the Arthropoda
    By nearly any measure, the most successful animals on the planet are the arthropods. They have conquered land, sea and air, and make up over three-fourths of all currently known living and fossil organisms

  5. The Dynastes granti Beetle
    The largest beetle species found in the United States


abdomen - the segmented tail area of a grasshopper, which contains the heart, reproductive organs, and most of the digestive system
antennae - like all insects, grasshoppers have 2 segmented antennae that sense touch and odors
compound eye - grasshoppers have 2 faceted eyes made up of many hexagonal lenses
head - the head is at the front end of the grasshopper's body and is the location of the brain, the two compound eyes, the mouth parts, and the points of attachment of its two antennae.
jumping legs -the long, hindmost pair of the grasshopper's six legs
mandibles - the jaws, located near the tip of the head, by the palps; the jaws crush the food

palps - long, segmented mouth parts (under the jaws) that grasp the food
spiracles - a series of holes located along both sides of the abdomen; they are used for breathing
thorax - the middle area of the grasshopper's body - where the legs and wings are attached
walking legs - the four, short front legs that are used for walking
wings - grasshoppers have two long wings, used for flying.
