Jared was way into touching these bones and using critical thinking to solve this mystery.
Jenna was more into recording the information! She didn't want anything to do with touching the bones but enjoyed participating in drawing conclusions based on our evidence ;)
We were to study different bones of a skeleton found around Yorktown, VA and to solve a mystery of who these bones belonged to. We were given clues and information about each of the bones and how the different characteristics of these bones would help lead us to discover the sex, age and height of the person, what type of lifestyle they lived based upon damage to bones while living, and time period that this person lived in.
We found out that these were skeletal remains of a slave during the 1700's!
It was fun to get out for some hands-on science, math and history today.
And...the daffodils are starting to bloom! Spring is on the way :)
