The California Academy of Sciences (last mentioned in the July 5, 2002 Scout Report), offers this well-designed and comprehensive Web site about skulls. Visitors will learn about skull structure and function, skull diversity, the living tissue associated with bones, and the role of the academy's skull collection in scientific research. This Web site is made especially appealing by its liberal use of sharp, well-presented skull photos. Many of the images can be rotated for a full 360 degree view (using QuickTime). Much of the information provided in this Web site comes in a easy-to-follow question and answer format. The site also includes a section titled Skulls in Culture, which relates how "cultures around the world have turned to skulls to express ideas about both life and death." This Web site would be an excellent complement to classroom material on skulls, or on craniates in general, for any grade level.
