Learning Outcomes

:
 Explain the support system in vertebrates and the various support systems in
invertebrates.
 Compare and contrast the support system between land and aquatic vertebrates.

1. Draw lines to match the support system in vertebrates and invertebrates with the correct
statement.

Endoskeleton All vertebrates have an internal skeleton
inside the body that gives them their
distinctive shape and supports the body.

Some invertebrates have a fluid-filled
Exoskeleton skeleton that consists of liquids under
pressure that acts on the inner walls to
support the body.

Hydrostatic skeleton
Most invertebrates have a hard covering
outside their body that supports the body
and protects its internal organs.

2. Compare and contrast the support system between land and aquatic vertebrates below
using the information given.

 Supported by its backbone.
 Supported by the surrounding water (buoyancy)
 Have body limbs for walking, running or flying
 Have streamlined bodies to move easily in water

b.Learning Outcomes:  Explain the various support systems in woody and non-woody plants. f. Draw lines to match the following information with the correct support system in land plants. 1. g. e. The stems are hard and rigid with an outer layer called the bark which provides support to the Woody plants plant. Match and label the correct plant parts using the words given. Hooks/Thorns Tendrils Clasping roots Hollow/Weak stems Aerial clasping roots Buttress root Prop roots Breathing roots a. h. d. The stems are soft containing fluid in the plant cells to support the stem of the plant Non-woody plants (Herbaceous) 2. The diagram below shows plant parts which are used in the support system in various plants.  Classify plants based on their support systems. . c.
