Description:

In this two-part activity students examine the teeth of living mammals to try to determine the animal's feeding habits and then apply skills learned to the interpretation of the diet of extinct animals. During this activity students will recognize that teeth display a variety of shapes, and that tooth shapes are correlated with specific ways of obtaining and processing food. They will be able to recognize the dietary habits of living animal species through the examination of their teeth, and hypothesize what the diets of extinct animals were through the examination of fossil teeth.
