Owl Pellets

My students need owl pellets to learn about food chains/webs. This activity will help my students learn together and from each other while dissecting their own pellet.

My Students

My students enter my classroom everyday excited to learn and see what new topic they will explore that day. The smile they have on their face when I tell them about a new project or experiment brightens up my day.

Having my students engage in a hands on project is vital to their learning.

I teach a bilingual class where the instruction is mainly English, having a language barrier can be difficult for them. However, by having the children participate in a hands on project helps them learn more efficiently.

Many of my students come from low income families were one or both parents have more than one job, and are unable to give extra money to fund projects.

My Project

My students need owl pellets so they can learn about food chains and webs. This activity will allow my students to work together, and learn prom each other while dissecting each their own pellet.

Children learn best by doing, and having each student dissect their own owl pellet will do just that, help them learn about food chains.

Having each student dissect their own owl pellet will increase their excitement as well as their learning experience. When students have a hands on activity the language barrier becomes a minor issue, and are able to learn efficiently about food chains and webs.
