My Students

My students are very interested in animal science and this project will be for agriculture students enrolled in Animal Science II, Small Animals. Some of them have an agricultural background with lots of experiences with animals and some of them do not. Most of them love animals and love learning different things about them!

My students are very inquisitive and they love to learn by doing hands-on projects.

They learn the best when they are busy creating something or pulling it apart.

My Project

We are requesting owl pellet dissection mini-kits. We will use the owl pellet dissection kits to learn about owl nutrition and the skeletal systems of small animals. Students will observe the contents of the pellets to learn about the things that they eat.

Students will discover the different types of bones as they sort through their findings and match them with the proper bones on the diagrams.

This will be a great way to learn about the skeletal system of small animals.

This hands-on project will motivate my students to learn about nutrition and the skeletal system in my small animals class. They will see first-hand the bones that make up these animals.
