*know what cleavage is and how it both increases the number of cells and decreases the size of each cell
*be able to identify the following stages on the prepared slide of starfish development: (egg, early
cleavage stages (2-cell, 4-cell, etc), morula, blastula and gastrula) and know the process that leads from
one stage to the next
*be able to identify the following stages in the models of frog development: (morula, blastula, gastrula
(ectoderm, mesoderm, endoderm, blastopore), neurula, tadpole) and know the process that leads form
one stage to the next
