Mystery Skull Interactive

Mystery Skull Interactive

This interactive activity gives students the opportunity to be a scientist and choose between four unidentified fossil skulls. Once the student chooses an unidentified skull, he or she will have the chance to compare the unidentified fossil skull with other skulls that have already been identified as early human species. Students can drag the skulls and examine each from various angles and make side-by-side comparisons. Once the comparisons are made, the student can decide if the unidentified skull is a new species or a preexisting early human species.
