Item #: FB1558
In the McWorm: Invertebrate Fast Food and Prey/Predator Behavior Laboratory Kit for biology and life science, observe predator-prey behaviors with live organisms. Watching attacks is sure to create interest.
A dead body has been found and the only things remaining are the bones. What can be learned about the dead person? Forensic scientists often make inferences from the bones of a dead person. In this activity students consider the correlation between ulna length (the long bone of the lower arm) and total body height. Scaled drawings of ulna bones are provided and students develop their own correlation of height and ulna length. After graphing their measurements, students use the graphed results to make predictions about who-dun-it!Enough materials are provided for 30 students working individually.
