Skull Identification Workshop

We used a kit from the California Academy of Sciences, rental of which had required that I attend a teacher training session. The class was interesting and very hands on, using teeth types and eye socket location as the basis for skull identification. We supplemented the (cool) skulls provided with the kit with some gory ones that we borrowed from our neighbor, which created quite an atmosphere for the class as well as some nice practical application of learning.

A very disgusting pig skull.
