  • 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
  • A mammal skull lab allows students a hands-on look at how an animal is adapted for survival in Kachemak Bay and how skulls are used for mammal classification. This lab is best suited for older students (4th grade through 12th grade) although the activity can be adapted to accommodate younger students if needed. The terms carnivore, herbivore and omnivore are covered and eye position and teeth type are discussed. Worksheets are available.

    A marine mammal activity is also available. This hands-on activity focuses on how sea otters, harbor seals, Steller sea lions, grey whales, humpback whales, orcas and porpoises are adapted to survival. Worksheets are available.
