Workshop Summary

Use the Museum’s osteology collection to investigate what skeletons are and what they do.

Students will examine a range of skeletons, including human, reptile, fish, bird and mammal. They will name some major bones and investigate how different parts of the skeletons (such as teeth, skull and legs) are adapted for the animal’s habitat, diet and lifestyle.

You can also book our Skeletons Game Gallery Resource Pack to support your workshop.
