Teeth & Skulls Kit

Rental Fee: $50*

Delve into the relationship between animal dentition and diet. Animals have teeth specialized for their diet which work to improve effectiveness and survival. This kit allows students to compare the different types of dentition and discover how the combination of incisors, canines and molars is designed for specific diets, whether carnivorous, herbivorous, insectivorous or omnivorous. The assortment of skulls in this kit will give students a hands-on experience to learn directly about specialization within species. They also have the ability relate what they learn back to themselves, comparing the animal skulls to human dentition and dietary choices.

The Teeth and Skulls Kit includes:

  • 5 Skulls of different species (with corresponding information cards)
  • 1 Human dental cast

The Teeth and Skulls Kit is aligned with Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core State Standards.

*Shipping and handling fees apply. The rental fee is waived for teachers participating in VINS School Programs.
