is the term exoskeleton? What is the opposite?
What are invertebrates? Give examples.
What are vertebrates? Give examples.

how the tissues and organs are interrelated
the complexity of organisms.

The classification of a shrimp includes the order Decapoda and Phylum Arthropods. Again it is a choice how much detail is best when introducing classification systems.
Getting students to make a dichotomous key to classify a shrimp for example would be an extension.
