TJ Students Bone Up on Anthropology Skills

Thomas Jefferson Elementary School fourth grade students participated in an investigation in the Smithsonian Natural History Museum’s Forensic Anthropology Lab during a tour of the Written in Bone temporary exhibit.

Using the tools of a forensic anthropologist, they studied real human bones and artifacts found with the skeleton to determine who this person was, when he/she lived, and what his/her life might have been like.
