My Students

My students are incredible. Not only do two-thirds of them come from poverty, these students are the hardest workers. These 6th grade students are a part of an accelerated program within the school that allows them to learn 6th-8th grade sciences in one school year. When they enter the 7th grade, they will begin taking high school courses.

To ensure they are prepared for high school level material, it is imperative they complete as many inquiry labs as possible.

Unfortunately, many of the labs I want them to experience are not funded by the school. Please help these amazing students learn through experience and not just knowledge in a book or on the internet.

My Project

All of my students will learn about food chains through dissecting owl pellets. Owls are carnivorous and eat lots of small animals. Once their bodies have digested all they can, they regurgitate the remains in small pellets.

These pellets will be dissected and examined by my students to determine what their owl ate.

They will compare the bones to a chart and then compare with their table mates. They will engage in exciting conversation about their findings and then share them with the entire class.

Help my students learn through a hands-on activity instead of only looking at pictures. They will be thrilled when they learn that they actually get to learn about food chains through a lab.
