  1. Infant Skull vs. Adult Skull

  2. Pg. 143 Figure 7.15 • A Lateral & superior View of the infant skull • Fontanels: fibrous membranes that permit some movement between the bones so that the growing skull can change shape& aid in labor through the birth canal. • Eventually close as the cranial bones grow together

  3. Infant Skull Characteristics • Relatively small face • Prominent forehead • Large orbits • Small jaw & nasal cavity • Sinuses are incompletely formed • Frontal bone in 2 parts • Thin skull bones, somewhat flexible • Less easily fractured than adult bones

  4. Venn Diagram • Draw a Venn diagram based on the differences & similarities of an adult skull and an infant skull. Part 2 Also describe on your paper where the frontal bone, occipital bone, and parietal bones are located.
