The Skull Tells All:  Exploring Content in Adaptations Using Biofacts

You can learn a lot about an animal, simply by examining the skull.  This professional development course designed for teachers of grades 6-12 will explore how to introduce content in animal adaptations, while using tactile exploration of biofacts (nature-based teaching tools).  Participants will learn how to take several measurements focusing on specific aspects of a skull in order to determine the adaptations a species possesses to help it survive in the wild.  We will also use Zoo exhibits to reinforce how and why these adaptations evolved in order to benefit an animal in its natural habitat.  Participants will use claim, evidence, and scientific reasoning to draw conclusions about the adaptations that their final “mystery animal” possessed.
