Pictures of different animal skulls make this slide show fascinating. The intent is to display the differences in structure among herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores. If you do not have animal skull replicas, this presentation would be of great value when teaching adaptations or animal eating habits. The pictures are a bit blurry, but adequate for the task. The format of the presentation is to show the skull, have viewers guess what type of feeder the animal is, and then show the answer.
With 24 questions, zoologists review the features of mammals. They fill in a table comparing monotremes, marsupials, and placental animals. They analyze adaptations on a drawing of a mammal skull. They answer questions about reproduction, eating habits, and anatomical features of these amazing animals.
Students identify and interpret the power of symbols. Then they research and identify what type of information that they can locate at the Library of Congress website and list what they learned from it in the time allotted. Students also locate individuals who were alive during World War II and bring them to class to be interviewed by the class about their experiences and memories of that time.
