We're Dissecting What? Owl Pellets

My students need 60 owl pellets for dissection.

My Students

Do you remember what it was like to have hands on science activities that would keep you interested in learning more about important concepts?

I teach Science 60 - 7th grade students in an urban public school.

Approximately 85% of my students participate in the school's free and/or reduced lunch program. I am always looking for ways to enhance student learning through hands on science activities. Inquiry based science reaches all learners including special education students and gifted students.

My Project

Owl pellets are a great way for students to engage in hands on learning. They will see the digestive system of owls and compare it to their own. They can also understand the food chain and predator-prey relationships. Owl pellets are a natural way to teach students several concepts that will help them on standardized testing.

I want to engage students in thinking critically about science and owl pellets can help them achieve this task.

With your help I can show students, who would normally not get an opportunity like this, how fun science can be and how much they can learn from a simple activity as dissecting owl pellets.
