Educator Resources for Mollusks

Impress your friends or family the next time you eat seafood with all the cool facts you’ll learn in BrainPOP’s mollusks movie! Snails, clams, octopuses, squid, slugs – we’ve got details on all these slimy, spineless animals right here waiting for you. So, dive in! Among other things, Tim and Moby will teach you about mollusk body parts and how mollusks breathe and get around. You’ll also learn just how many species of mollusks exist (it's a pretty big number!), as well as how to tell the difference between the three main types of mollusk: gastropods, bivalves, and cephalopods. It’s mollusk mania!
