I really love giving the students genuine learning experiences. Our school's mascot is Ollie the Owl. After all the high stakes end of year testing is over, it would be fun to end the Heredity and Life Cycle units by dissecting Ollie's dinner. It would increase the learning factor, especially in the last few weeks of school, with hands-on activities while dissecting owl pellets. These will be pellets of owls that live in our area! One of the science units that 5th grade spends lots of time on involves learning about accommodations that animals make to live in the ever changing environment. The dissection and study of owl pellets would bring all that knowledge to a fun end, just in time for the summer break! We could even find a local Fish and Game Warden to come in a talk with the kiddos about the owls found in the area and some of the problems they are faced with. Maybe we could even find a raptor breeder in the area to show the students actual sizes and to allow them to see the birds. We need owl pellets, wooden picks, forceps, dissection mats, magnifiers, and posters to carry out this activity.
