OWL PELLET DISSECTION


As a culminating activity for their Science unit on animals Mrs. O'Connor's class dissected barn owl pellets.  These pellets are masses of bones, teeth, hair, feathers, scales, and insect skeletons that are regurgitated by the owls after they have digested the softer parts of the prey.  Each group had to try to identify the bones and predict what the owl had eaten.  It was hard to tell who was more excited - the kids, the parents or the teacher!
