  1. Bite, Tear, Chew

    Like other animals with backbones, almost all mammals have teeth. However, they differ in the number and kinds of teeth they have. By examining mammals' teeth, scientists can draw conclusions about their diets and categorize them as herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, or insectivores. Examine the skulls of several mammals to determine their diets. Spanish language activity book and object cards are available upon request. Learn More
  2. Ice Age Mammals

    This box contains models of mammals (and their teeth!) that could be found in the Chicago region 12,000 years ago. Look at the animals' physical characteristics and infer their evolutionary advantages. Discuss some of the physical changes that happened as Amebelodons evolved into mammoths and modern elephants. Debate what caused these changes and identify relationships among these animals based on their teeth. Learn More
