Skull detectives: Understanding Mammal Skulls!

Mammal skulls can tell you amazing amount about an animal's biology. Was it a predator or a prey species? What did it eat - plants, meat, or a combination of both?

Can you match the animal skulls to the animals and the types of food it eats?

Today we will also be looking at the relationship between multiplication facts. Look below at this image:








You should notice that the number you are dividing by (divisor) is halving each time, 8 to 4 to 2. As a result of this the quotient (answer) is doubling each time, 12 becomes 24 becomes 48.
