Discovery of skeletal remains provides a number of leads for identification of the victim and possibly the Cause of Death (COD). In these activities students will be handling bones as complete skeletons and articulated/separate parts.

Identifying sex based upon skull features and the pelvic structure.
Identifying height based upon long bone measurements and established formulas from 1,000's of studies.
Identifying age based upon teeth and skull suture lines.

Follow the adventures of Farmer Joe and his daughter from the dark growth of grasses on their farm to the big city crime families in this tale of discovery.

This project is brought to you by Gordon Sanford with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by Team Lead Mike Morris.
