I work with a bright, high-energy group of students. These kids are from the North Woods and love the outdoors, especially the lakes, rivers, and forests that surround us.
Our district motto is to achieve and my class does that daily through academics, character, and behavior.
My classroom is approximately thirty percent Native American. I am continually impressed at how motivated my students are when it comes to their learning. They are always up for a good challenge and exceed expectations!
We live in the great Northwoods of Wisconsin where wildlife is everywhere. One creature we share the area with yet rarely see is the owl. I believe science curriculum should include study of planets and oceans and African animals, but it absolutely should include a study of the things found in our own backyard.
I intend to create a hands-on, hearts-on, minds-on learning experience by dissecting owl pellets.
This experience will guide the class in discussion about the owl and food chains. And ultimately, my kids will have a deeper appreciation for our wildlife.
In the past, I have used paper plates as the dissecting trays. Having actual dissecting trays will keep things cleaner and feel more scientific.
