Homeschooling during Corona?
Dissecting Owl Pellets is – by far – the most popular hands-on science class that Velya offers. This kit is the next-best-thing to a workshop with her! Kids learn effectively when they’re actively engaged in the discovery process. Active investigations nurture curiosity and develop positive attitudes toward science which will last a lifetime
Students will understand that within ecosystems, complex interactions exist between organisms and the physical environment. As their natural curiosity leads them to explore the natural world, each child will “take” something different from the experience – from an understanding of the food chain and circle-of-life concept, to mammal anatomy.
- Gain an insight of what types of small animals exist in the environment and what the food chain might look like
- Gain insights into the diet and biology of owls through an analysis of the contents of an owl pelle
- Develop a better understanding of mammalian skeletal anatomy based on remains recovered from owl pellets
- 1 sterilized owl pellet
- dissecting probe
- bone sorting chart
- analysis worksheet
Ideal for kids in Grades K-5
