My kids love spongebob... I am not exactly a fan... but they did learn about crustaceans from our dear spongy friend... but there is really more to it than Patrick and Bob told us!
Another interesting arthropod is the crustacean. Characteristics of these insects are easy to remember because of their name... crust... aceans. They have a crusty outer shell that protects them from predators. Most of these creature live in the water. They have some very special characteristics about them:
1) Crustaceans grow throughout their lives, and molt
2)They have 3 body parts - head thorax, and abdomen
3)ten jointed legs
5) it can regenerate wounded or missing body parts
6) includes crabs, lobsters, shrimp, barnacles, and landlubbers
