Write no more than 2 pages on your original observations and comparisons of bones
Please, read carefully and follow the instructions:Go to the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) and visit first the Hall of Human Origins. Write no more than 2 pages on your original observations and comparisons of bones. Make your own observations as you compare the skeletons or some specific aspect of humans with other apes and fossils of other hominids. Or you can pick one bone or types of bones to compare amongst the different species. Perhaps focusing on the skull anatomy is good idea but not necessary. See if you can go into the classroom off of the Hall of Human Origins where you can hold and closely examine the skulls/pelvises of humans, other apes and hominids. You can go with classmates but make your own observations. Don’t forget to take a selfie or two in the exhibit (with Lucy, for example).Still have energy left? Take your own big skull filled with knowledge of skeletal and muscular anatomy to the 4th floor of the AMNH where you will find the Vertebrates. Analyze one particular type of bone or series of bones (teeth or vertebrae or the pelvis or the jaw, for example) in the myriad of vertebrates on display. Compare your chosen bones in dinosaurs vs mammals or meat-eaters vs herbivores, flyers vs non-flyers. Put to use your imagination, creativity and analytical skills and most of all your joy of learning in this project.
