Fun Projects at Tiegerman Elementary School
SA2 had a representative from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation present a live zoom session for our class to teach us about identifying animal skulls that the DEC has collected for research over the years.
She showed us real examples of animal skulls (deer, raccoon and pig) and introduced us how to identify these animal skulls based on the different characteristics of the animals (i.e., teeth, eyes) of the skull.
The representative from the DEC lives in the Adirondacks and was also able to share her trail cam with us and teach us about the different animals she has seen on the cam. SA2 had a great time learning about skull and animal identification during science class!
