Do Now… • Write down all of the letters in the Alphabet (use uppercase). • Circle the letters that have radial symmetry in red. • Circle the letters that have bilateral symmetry in blue. • Circle the letters that are asymmetrical in yellow. • *Some letters may have more than 1 type of symmetry!*
Objectives • Students will… • Describe the structures that make up sponges and cnidarians. • Compare how sponges and cnidarians get food and reproduce. • Review Self Check Homework
Sponges (pg. 501-502) • Characteristics of Sponges A. Filter Feeders • - Sponges filter food from the water that flows through their bodies. • -Do not make own food! B. Body Support and Defenses • - spicules and spongin protect sponges from predators • What are spicules and spongin?

Do Now… • How do sponges and cnidarians get their food? • Sponges-filter food out of the water as it comes to them • Cnidarians-actively capture prey with their tentacles that have stinging cells.
Objectives • Students will • Differentiate between flatworms and roundworms through the creation of a foldable
Flatworm/Roundworm Foldable • Create foldable according to teacher instructions
Tapeworms • Type of parasitic flatworm • To survive, it lives in the intestines of its host (including humans!) • Since it does not have a digestive system, it absorbs nutrients from digested material in the host’s intestine. • How do tapeworms get into humans? • Tapeworm length activity
Videos • Why parasites might not be all that bad • Flatworms • Roundworms
For Next Time… • Read pgs. 506-508 • Define organ, mollusks, mantle, gills and radula on index cards. • Due on Friday, 11/1.
