As a 7th grade science teacher at Winton Middle School, I have seen the budget shrink every year. This past spring I couldn't order owl pellets to replace the ones used in the 2004-2005 school year. As the department chair, I would love to surprise the science staff with enough owl pellets for every two students. The owl pellet dissection is an awesome hands-on activity for the students as they learn to use dissection tools for the first time. They work together as detectives to determine what prey their owl ate. Some students are able to piece and glue entire mole skeletons while others recognize the cyclical nature of ecology. Winton is a Title I school with most students receiving free lunch. 35% of students are second language learners. I am asking for enough owl pellets so that this visual learning aide will benefit all 7th grade science students.
