Spider Science Facts Because they have some characteristics that are different from insects. Amongst the vast numbers of invertebrate animals in the Phylum Arthopoda, more than a million different kinds have bodies with three main parts--head, thorax, and abdomen. The head has eyes, antennae and mouthparts. The thorax has three pairs of legs. The entire body is protected by a tough outer covering called an exoskeleton. Animals that share these characteristics are called insects.

Arachnophobia is the scientific name for the fear of spiders. It is the most common example of an animal-based phobia and many people experience it mildly. For some people it has very intense effects. Different people suffer to different degrees and to those who do not suffer them phobias seem irrational, the afflicted person reacts intensely to the merest sign of the phobia causing animal. It is often difficult, if not impossible, for those of us not suffering to make any sense of what they are experiencing. Phobias can be stimulated by many animals but spiders are the most common source. Arachnophobia

The Tree of Life Web Project (ToL) is a collaborative effort of biologists and nature enthusiasts from around the world. On more than 10,000 World Wide Web pages, the project provides information about biodiversity, the characteristics of different groups of organisms, and their evolutionary history (phylogeny). Each page contains information about a particular group, e.g., salamanders, segmented worms, phlox flowers, tyrannosaurs, euglenids, Heliconius butterflies, club fungi, or the vampire squid.

Insects and Minibeasts: A Creepy Crawly Experience for Grades 1-3 By Theresa Hughes-Feletar: Dip.Ed(ece);B.Ed;M.Ed. Updates as needed are by field-trips.org The world of insects has always been fascinating, mainly because we can see them, they are a part of our daily lives and we have so much in common with them. Insects are part of a group called minibeasts, which are creatures without backbones. Like humans, most insects are social and live in communities--they have leaders, workers and child rearers.

Indigenous Peoples' Literature In the beginning there was no fire, and the world was cold, until the Thunders, who lived up in Galun lati (Gah-lun-lah-tee), sent their lightening and put fire into the bottom of a hollow sycamore tree which grew on an island. The animals knew it was there, because they could see the smoke coming out at the top, but they could not get to it on account of the water, so they held a council to decide what to do. This was in the long ago time, when the animals could talk one to the other. Every animal that could fly or swim was anxious to go after the fire. Grandmother Spider & Fire
