  12. How does a bivalve build its shell?
    A thing membrane called the?______lines the inside of both shells and protects the internal organs.
  13. The bivalve cannot feed if its shells are completely closed, so by what method they feed and breath?
    A siphon tube
  14. The siphon tube has two openings? What are those?
    Incurrent siphon and excurrent siphon
  15. In the "life activities of bivalves" water that contains food and oxygen enters through the?
    Incurrent siphon

  18. Bivalves breathe through its?
    Ciliated cells
  19. Bivalves are adapted to breath underwater by using?
    Gill membranes
  20. How does a bivalve filter feed?
    Currents of water that contain plakton and debris pass through the siphon tube
