Science Bulletins: Our Ancient Relatives Born with Flexible Skulls
A new study of the skull of an early hominin child provides a better understanding of the evolutionary timeline for modern human skulls-and brains. The skulls of modern humans are highly flexible at birth so they can both fit through a narrow birth canal and expand to hold a brain that grows substantially in early life. When researchers scanned the skull of the Taung child (Australopithicus africanus), they found structural features similar to those in the flexible skulls of modern infants. The
Heat It Up!

Students learn about the three different modes of heat transfer (convection, conduction, radiation) and how they are related to the Sun and life on our planet.
Find the Unfamiliar Words (Interative)
This activity is designed to help you think about how English language learners approach reading, what words they probably know, and how you can teach words that they may not know.
