      1. As you move from station from station, fill in the table.
  1. Your results tell me what you saw, and what you discovered.
    1. After the Methods Section, write your results. Write with the following topic sentence:
      1. The skeleton supports an animals body. The shape of an animal's skeleton determines what the animal can physically do.
      2. Then, write an essay that describes each skeleton.
        1. First, write your topic sentence based upon the following:
          1. The frog's skeleton is designed so that the frog can jump and swim.
        2. After your topic sentence, write a general description of the skeleton. Then write about how the vertebrae (spine) and limbs look.
        3. As you talk about an animal that is in Table 1, put "(see Table 1)" at the end of the last sentence of that section. Do the same for Table 2.
  2. Your discussion tells me what you think.
    1. In your last section, the Discussion, answer the following question:
      1. What does an animal's skeleton tell you about the animal?
      2. Compare and Contrast the vertebrae (spine) of fish, birds, bats, pigs, snakes, and man.
        1. What is different between the vertebrae (spine) of animals that swim, fly, and run?
        2. What is different between animals' vertebrae (spine) that help the animal walk on two legs and four legs?
        3. What is different between animals' vertebrae (spine) who are great jumpers, and other animals with similar skeletons?
      3. Compare and Contrast the limbs of fish, birds, bats, pigs, snakes, and man.
        1. What is different between the limbs of animals that swim, fly, and run?
        2. What is different between animals' limbs that help the animal walk on two legs and four legs?
        3. What is different between animals' limbs who are great jumpers, and other animals with similar skeletons?
      4. Conclude with a paragraph that gives me a summary of what you have discovered in the move and lab.
