Homeschool Adventure Days
SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology is excited to announce our upcoming Homeschool Adventure Day on December 6, 2017! We invite everyone attending the events to enjoy all-day museum admission before and after your scheduled program, special scavenger hunts, and a 60-minute hands-on education program.
Grades K-5 - Amazing Animal Adaptations
1:30pm-2:30pm - All animals have adaptations. Some help them to eat, while others help them from being eaten. In this class we will look at various osteological and external adaptations that help animals survive.
Grades 6-12 - Forensic Osteology: Human Skulls
3:00pm-4:00pm - Forensic Osteology: Human Skulls is a crime lab-based program focusing on the forensic investigation of various types of trauma to the human skull. After a basic introduction to skull osteology and lab procedures, students will break-up into teams using a variety of tools from their forensic science kit to evaluate and document key evidence to support their results. They will then defend their findings to the class. Museum quality replicas of human skulls-from actual crime scenes-are used in this program.
