My students need owl pellets in order to see how owls live in the ecosystems around them and how they survive. They will use the dissecting forceps to pick a part the pellets to see inside.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
As a STEM teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my scholars are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. My scholars want to learn and explore the world around them. I want to provide them with the tools needed to succeed both today and in the future.
Learning should be fun and challenging.
My scholars need to learn the value of problem solving and team work. I want my scholars to enjoy using science and math together. My scholars like to move and explore while working on complex problems. I want my scholars to understand the how behind the why.
My scholars are still learning about the world around them. Many of them have not had many outdoor wildlife experiences. In the STEM lab I like to encourage my scholars to explore and experiment using different materials. They are learning about different animals and the ecosystems they live in. They are using science and math in order to make connections.
Dissecting owl pellets will help my scholars to see beyond just the animal.
This will help them infer about the types of environment they live in and the types of foods they eat. They will be able to view the owl as both the predator and the prey. Scholars will be able to understand the process of the life cycle in a more extensive way. They will be able to explore in a hands on way.
