Insect Characterisitics

 Info  below  from http://www.ivyhall.district96.k12.il.us/4TH/KKHP/1insects/buginfo.html



All insects must have:


  • three body parts - a head, thorax, and abdomen
  • six jointed legs
  • two antennae to sense the world around them
  • an exoskeleton (outside skeleton)


Insect Anatomy


Insects have a lightweight, but strong exterior (outside) skeleton called an exoskeleton. Their muscles and organs are on the inside. This multi-layered exoskeleton protects the insect from the environment and natural enemies. The exoskeleton also has many sense organs for sensing light, pressure, sound, temperature, wind, and smells. Sense organs may be located almost anywhere on the insect body, not just on the head.




Insects have three main body parts: head, thorax, and abdomen.
