I have four classes of fourth graders that rotate through my classroom for science and social studies. I use centers in my classroom and provide hands-on opportunities for exploration as much as possible.
My kiddos are such curious creatures and are always eager to learn about science!
I love to see their eyes light up as they make a new discovery, solve a problem, or develop a new model or way of looking at things. We are always questioning and wondering. Our classroom is a land of wonder, and we love it that way!
An owl pellet dissection lab is a memorable (and fun!) way to learn about the eating habits of birds of prey— birds such as owls that eat rodents and small birds.
What are owl pellets?
They are the regurgitated remains of an owl’s meal, including all the bones of the animals it ate (usually small rodents). Owls usually swallow their food whole, digest the edible parts, and then expel the indigestible parts through their mouth as a pellet. It might sound gross, but dissecting these is a project most kids love!
What a fun and exciting way to finish up our Life Science Unit!
