Skull Science

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

What can your class learn from a skull? With proper facilitation, they can learn about diet, physical adaptations, special differences, and even the environment. Pupils will examine a series of mammal skulls and pelts to help them understand why different mammals have adapted similar, yet varied, traits based on environmental factors. Mammal skulls, teeth, and pelts can usually be borrowed from local museums.
