Virtual Lab:  Classifying Arthropods
Post-Lab Quiz and Lab Report

Please make sure you have read through all of the information in the “Questions” and “Arthropod Reference Guide” areas.  If you come upon terms that are unfamiliar to you, please refer to your textbook for further explanation or search the word here: 
1.   In this exercise, you will make observations of external anatomical characteristics of selected arthropods in order to determine their classification.  To begin, click on one of the specimen jars; this will place the specimen onto the dissecting tray.  You can click on a highlighted area of the body to make closer observations of the features.  Make notes on your observations of the external structures seen in your “Data Table” and/or in Table I below. 
2.   When you are through, please compare your data to the information found in the “Arthropod Reference Guide” to determine the class to which the specimen belongs.  Place this information in the “Data Table” and/or in Table I below.  Click the class name button that corresponds to your selection and then select “Check” to evaluate your response.  The common name for this organism will appear below the dissecting tray; input this information into the “Data Table” and/or Table I.
3.   Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the remaining 3 specimens.  There are 9 different arthropods that can be identified; click “Reset” in order to obtain and observe a new set of specimens.
4.   Please finish this exercise by opening the “Journal” link at the bottom of the page and answering the questions.

Table I:
   Body Sections (1,2,3 or >3)   Walking Legs (6,8 or >8)   Other appendages (Y/N)   Antennae (0,2,4)   Claw Present (Y/N)   Jaw Present (Y/N)   Class   Common Name
Specimen 1                        
Specimen 2                        
Specimen 3                        
Specimen 4
