This page is dedicated to the learning of EVOLUTION and EXTINCTION of the giant shark Carcharocles megalodon. Here, you will find all the information you need in order to access the specimen in a scientific database, download and print the files, science lessons, math lessons, and rubrics. Our hope is that your students learn about what scientists do by mimicking their scientific process.
Ultimately, your students will be able to reconstruct a megalodon jaw and calculate the size of the animal. The availability of his jaw is made possible by Dr. Gordon Hubbell, who has donated the specimen to the Florida Museum of Natural History for K12 purposes.
