Going Back to Skull with Biology in a Box

NIMBioS Communications Coordinator Catherine Crawley and NIMBioS Education and Outreach Coordinator Kelly Moran dropped in on students at Jacksboro Middle School in Campbell County, TN to film for an upcoming NIMBioS video about Biology in a Box. Seventh grade science teacher Gale Stanley led the students through a hands-on activity from Unit #2, Of Skulls and Teeth. Students handled skulls from a turtle, armadillo, bobcat, skunk, and many more. After counting each skull’s teeth, the students generated a frequency table of the number of incisors, canines, pre-molars and molars, and then answered questions about dental pattern differences between carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.
