  1. 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
  2. Beaks and Feet

    This box includes skulls and feet from an ostrich, woodpecker, duck, hawk, and a surprising bird relative. The variation in their beaks and feet emphasizes the fact that all these species are highly adapted to different food sources and environments. Learn about the process of natural selection, test out "eating" with a variety of imitation bird beak types, and create an evolutionary tree of life to illustrate how the specimens in the box are genetically related.
