Mrs. Simpson and I cooked up a fun owl surprise at the
end of our short owl unit the first week of school.
Check out all the new facts we know about owls
after reading 2 non-fiction books.
Owls cannot digest the fur and bones of the animals
that they eat so they cough or regurgitate those parts up
in an owl pellet form. The two classes participated in
an owl pellet dissection. Inside students found the skull,
ribs, pelvis, and much more of mice and other small rodents.
It was amazing to hear them as they worked!
One of them even said, "This is like, SCIENCE!"
It was well worth the money and time invested for this activity.
