Most of the students at our school come from economically disadvantaged homes where experiences are limited and education is not highly prioritized, this leads to a low motivation level in many students. Many students live with other family members instead of with their parents or come from broken homes. Many students come to school hungry and without appropriate seasonal clothing.
I love providing the students in my classroom with experiences that will stay with them forever.
I try to create lessons that allow my students to be creative and that give them the knowledge and skill set to become successful learners.
Students will dissect owl pellets as a hands on activity to investigate food chains. Students will investigate the different animals that the owl consumed by uncovering the bones that will be found inside the owl pellet and then using the bone chart to figure out what kind of animal(s) that the owl had recently eaten.
Children will get a hands on approach to food chains and predator/prey relationships by piecing together the bones of the owl's latest meal.
This project will be a culminating activity to wrap up an ecosystem unit, lessons on digestion, and also as an excititng end to a literature unit on the book POPPY.
