Animal Skulls

Single program or series | One school visit (1 hour) or one school visit (1 hour) and one field trip (2 hours)

Students will examine a variety of animal skulls to determine the adaptations that have allowed each animal to survive as a predator or prey.Working in groups, students will study real bones, then use their observations to form hypotheses about functions and/or behavior of the animals.

Students will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge of energy flow through an ecosystem during a field trip to a sanctuary or other outdoor space.
