Dr. Linda Spurlock Teaches 7th Grade about "Ardi" - Newly Discovered Human Ancestor Skeleton

Our 7th graders will have a unique experience this week as Dr. Linda Spurlock, the Director of Human Health from the Cleveland Museum of Natural History comes to teach them about Ardi, the newly discovered human ancestor skeleton that has been all over the news lately. Dr. Spurlock had the task of reconstructing missing parts of Ardi's skeleton using her incredible forensic anthropology skills. She routinely lectures to large professional groups, so it is an incredible opportunity to have her sit down with our 7th graders for a 45 minute tutorial.
