The Topic:
Marsupials

Easier - Marsupial (mar-soo-pee-uhl) is the name of a large animal group whose young are born in an immature state. Females usually carry and nurse their young in pouches or pouch-like area on their abdomens. The newborn attaches itself to one of her nipples and remains until it is well formed and has grown much larger.
 
Marsupials live in forests, plains, and deserts. They are found in the Americas, Australia, New Guinea, and some neighboring islands. They include kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, wombats, bandicoots, and opossums. Kangaroos are the largest marsupials - - a male red kangaroo can reach 6' high. Shrew-like ningauis are the smallest - - some of the latter weigh less than 1/10 ounce (2.8 grams).
 
Harder - Marsupials differ from other mammals by having their young born in an extremely immature or undeveloped state. Newborn marsupials emerge from their mother's birth canal and instinctively wiggle their way to a nipple. In most species, the nipples are located in a pouch called the marsupium. Newborn marsupials undergo most of their development attached to one of their mother's nipples and nourished by her milk. They remain close until they no longer need her milk and can fend for themselves. A few marsupials, such as the shrew opossum, do not have pouches.
 
There are about 260 different species of marsupials. Most can be classified into one of six groups. Two marsupial groups are found only in the Americas: (1) didelphids that include opossums and (2) caenolestids, the rat opossums of western South America. The other four marsupial groups are found in Australasia. The (3) macropods are kangaroos and wallabies. Phalangers (4) are called possums, but should not be confused with Americas' Opossums. Most (5) dasyurids are small, insect-eating mammals, but this group also includes a few carnivore marsupials. The (6) peramelids are bandicoots. That still leaves koalas and wombats, two other species.

Possum or Opossum? Possums are furry marsupials that live in the trees of Australia, New Guinea, and nearby islands. The opossum is a member of a family of furry mammals that live in the Western Hemisphere, from Ontario southward into South America. Opossums and possums are not closely related. Compare and contrast these two marsupial groups. Show the results of your research and analysis in a spreadsheet or with Inspiration software.
