    What is a

    Jellyfish?

    (glue here)

    Where are

    jellyfish found?

    Jellyfish aren’t actually

    fish. They are cnidarians –

    a group of soft, boneless

    sea animals. Cnidarians

    are one of the most

    common groups of sea

    animals, and include

    corals, freshwater hydras,

    and sea anemones.

    Jellyfish are found in every

    ocean in the world, even

    including the icy waters!

    Movement

    Cut out the rectangle as one piece and fold on the dotted line. Inside (opposite

    the “glue here” side), write or paste the information about how jellyfish move.

    (glue here)

    How do jellyfish

    move?

    Jellyfish move by contracting their

    bodies, forcing the water inside of

    them out and propelling them

    forward. Currents and winds usually

    determine the path a jellyfish follows, which is why so many wash

    up on shorelines.

    Jellyfish

    Anatomy

    Jellyfish are mostly just a stomach.

    They don’t have any bones, eyes,

    or even a brain. They don’t have

    lungs or gills, but rather absorb

    oxygen through their skin. They do

    have mouths in the middle of the

    underside of their bell-shaped top.

    Many jellyfish also have tentacles.

    Diet

    the “glue here” side), write or paste the information about jellyfish diet.

    (glue here)

    Jellyfish

    Diet

    Jellyfish don’t really have to hunt. They

    wait for small animals to swim into their

    tentacles. Animals such as zoo-

    plankton, small fish, and even other

    jellyfish are the typical diet.
