We have lots of skulls, beaks, bones and teeth in the Inquiry Centre at Queensland Museum South Bank. Often we devise some activities for our visitors such as:
Can you pick which animal these bones belong to? The selection includes bones from a turtle, dugong, horse, cow and a pig. Are you able to solve the puzzle?
Sometimes you may be asked to Find a Fossil by hunting through selections of pointed shells, mussels, round shells and other fossils in a collection.
Challenges are changing all the time so pop in to our Inquiry Centre on Level 3 and take up the challenge!
Some activity sheets that are based on the Australian Science Curriculum and involve a visit to the Inquiry Centre at Queensland Museum South Bank are: Bird Beaks and Feet; and Observation and Classification Skills. These can be found in the Learning Resources section of our website.
The answers to the above puzzle are:
1. Pig (Skull); 2. Dugong (bottom jaw bone); 3. Cow (Bottom Jaw); 4. Turtle; 5. Horse (bottom Jaw); 6. Turtle; 7. Dugong (Skull).
