Unit 4 Project: Animal Diversity
ASSIGNMENT 1 BIOLOGY
We spent the last unit learning about animal diversity. Let’s learn more about some individual animals.
We learned about nine animal phyla in our Animal Diversity lecture. Explore the resources below (or do your own internet search) and choose 4 living animals that each belong in a different phylum. Refer to our Animal Diversity lecture for information on the different phyla.
FILL IN ANIMAL TABLE ATTACHED CALLED UNIT 4 PROJECT
with information on the 4 different animals (each animal you choose should belong in a different phylum; i.e., do NOT select 2 animals from the same phylum). Your Unit 4 Project submission will be the completed table. Please submit as a Microsoft Word file, PDF, or Google Doc (please do NOT submit as Apple Pages file).
If you choose to make a Google Doc, be sure to share the slides by providing access to anyone with the link and then provide the Google Slides URL link as your assignment submission.
USE ATTACHED EXAMPLE AS A REFERENCE ITS CALLED EXAMPLE 1 (do NOT use the animal from my example). While my example only covers one animal, your project should cover four animals. There are a lot of fascinating animals you may not have heard of; don’t feel like you have to use animals you already know about.
What needs to be included:
Organize the following information in the table I provided above. Your final table should include all of the following bullet points:
· You must provide the phylum, class, order, family, genus, species, and common name for 4 living animals (each animal must be from a different phylum; do NOT select 2 animals from the same phylum)
o Note: Genus and species are 2 different categories, but are often presented together, e.g., Canis lupus = Canis is the genus and lupus is the species
§ Wolf is the common name for Canis lupus
· For each animal, state:
o Body symmetry (refer to chapter 15 PowerPoint for assistance)
o Triploblast, diploblast, or neither? (refer to chapter 15 PowerPoint for assistance)
o If the animal is a triploblast, is it a protostome or deuterostome? (refer to chapter 15 PowerPoint for assistance)
o Is the animal a coelomate, acoelomate, or pseudocoelomate? (refer to chapter 15 PowerPoint for assistance)
o How does the animal reproduce? Asexual, sexual, or both?
o What is the animal’s habitat like?
o Share one interesting/unique adaptation that the animal has (i.e., an adaptation you may not see in other phyla)
§ Don’t just give an adaptation that you find in many/all phyla
· Picture of each animal (real image of the animal, not an illustration of the animal
o Please note: the picture you provide should match the genus species you list (e.g., the African elephant is a genus consisting of 2 elephant species — make sure the picture shows the genus species you list)
· Include the website URL that you use for each animal (you do not need to use MLA/APA format)
o References from educational institutions, such as universities, aquariums, museums, or organizations that are recognized authorities are recommended
o Do not use websites, such as Wikipedia, social media, forums, or personal blogs
o You may need to visit more than one website to get all the information needed to fill out a table for one animal; list all the websites used for each animal
Great source for classification
· Tip: scroll down the webpage for a list of animals
https://animaldiversity.org/accounts/Animalia/ this site is a little tricky to use)
· Tip: scroll down to “Related Taxa” on the bottom right and click on a class, then scroll down to “Related Taxa” again and click on a species
Britannica Science Encyclopedia
§ Tip: click one of the animal groups in the “Browse Subcategories” section
o (I highly recommend this source!)
§ Great source for marine animals!
ASSIGNMENT 2 POLITICAL SCIENCE
Pick the two different civil rights issues discussed in the text and or lecture that you believe should have the highest priority of the U.S. Government now. Provide specific reasons for your choices.
If you believe that the civil rights of Americans are satisfactory at this point in time, provide specific reasons for this position, as well.
MAKE SURE THIS IS 8. SENTENCES
USE ATTCHMENTS MODULE 15 LECTURE NOTES POLITICAL SCIENCE AND MAGLE BY CHAPTER 15 TO WRITE
The three questions that each of you must answer in your initial post are:
1. What were the three main ideas that stood out for you from this chapter?
2. Without repeating information from the textbook, why are those main ideas from the chapter important to you? (In other words, how have you experienced the concepts/principles discussed in this chapter?)
3. How will you use the information in this chapter in your work life AND what outcomes/results do you expect to achieve by doing so?
When writing your initial post that answers these three questions, please label your answers according to the question number (using the numbers 1, 2, and 3). Do not re-write the questions in your answer.
