Case of the Talking Skulls

The Case of the Talking Skulls

Grades: 4-8

Animal skulls are great tools for teaching students about the diversity of wildlife and the special role each animal plays in its natural habitat. Your students will learn to “read” the clues that skulls provide by participating in this lively hands-on lesson: predator or prey? herbivore, carnivore or omnivore? nocturnal or diurnal? Live animals will reinforce the connection between skull form (evidence) and animal behavior.

Maximum: one class
