Hello! I am a Science Specialist at an Elementary School and I teach every grade level (kindergarten-fifth grade). This is the first year that the school has had this position so I have very limited supplies. Also, the district does not provide money for this position so I am relying on the school's PTA for most of my consumables. I am asking for 80 small owl pellets for a unit that I am teaching my fourth graders on animal adaptations. In this unit, students will learn how owls catch their prey and then process their meals into nutrients producing a by-product, owl pellets. The students will work with a partner and dissect the owl pellet to find bones and other remains of small animals. Thank you for your consideration!
