Animal Skull Identification Lab for Mammals

Whether you are planning to run an animal skull hands-on lab OR you are looking for an enrichment activity to build deductive reasoning skills, our Animal Skull Identification Lab packet provides you with all the information you need for a no- to low-prep time learning activity.

The Animal Skull Identification Lab is now available as a:

  1. PDF file to be used in-class as part of your live teaching lesson
  2. Google Slides document to be assigned through your learning management system and assigned for students as a virtual, self-guided lab that can be used on a student's own digital devices

The Animal Skull Identification Lab packet includes background information that reviews key concepts relating to skull features:

  • Key vocabulary, such as predator, herbivore, rostrum, etc
  • Color images with labelled features
  • Dental formula reference charts
  • Images that practice identifying certain features
  • Animal Skull Feature Checklist
    >> Designed for reluctant writers

If you plan to have students examine actual skulls in your classroom, you will need to have rulers, pencils, and calculators on-hand.

Don't have your own animal skulls? No worries. This product includes access to a bonus Google Slides document containing 5 images of different animal skulls - from 4 different angles - that your students can identify. Skull measurements are included for this virtual lab, but students can still calculate the Cephalic Index, if you wish.
