Adaptations in Birds and Mammals

This event is no longer on sale.

Wednesday January 15

9:45 AM  –  11:15 AM

Using specimens from bird and mammal collections, students analyze the similarities and differences in anatomy, form, and function between these animal groups and how they are affected by environmental change. Students then develop hypotheses to account for observed patterns and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of specific adaptations.

Note: Parents do not need to attend the lab with their child but do need to remain in the Museum.

Children must be 11 years of age or older to register them for this program.
