I teach in an amazing urban school in the heart of Knoxville, TN. Our urban population is made of up students from many countries and ethnic backgrounds. Several of our students are learning English as a second language, many of our students live in poverty, and all of our students are excited about learning.
I have 25 fifth graders who are curious, engaged, and loads of fun!
I love watching them learn new things and opening their minds to the world all around them.
Our students will use these owl pellets to learn more about interdependence and what an owl consumes. We will work in pairs carefully dissecting the pellets, and then we will try to reassemble the rat's skeletons based on the charts included. The students really love this activity, and I hope you can help me provide the resources they need to complete it again this year.
Owl pellets are an amazing resource to allow students to study a little more about life cycles in a very hands on way.
There is no way that the purchase of owl pellets is covered in our regular budget. You will allow students to dig into the regurgitations of barn owls and learn more about interdependence.
