Mammal Skull Versus Reptile: What are the differences?

DRIVING QUESTION: If you find a fossilized skull, what clues tell you if it is a mammal or reptile?
LEARNING GOALS: Learning goals are for students to collect, analyze and interpret data found in 3D printed fossil skulls. Students will be able to understand what type of information fossils can provide, including the environment where animals lived and the type of food they ate. In addition, they will have a better understanding of how much information can be found from past events regardless of size and or/time periods.
