Come and Learn About and Draw a Wolf!

All About Owl Pellets!

Average rating:4.8Number of reviews:(295)
In this one time class students will learn all about owl pellets and how scientists use them to learn about the diet and lifestyle of owls.

Class experience

At the end of the session students will be able to describe what an owl pellet is and were we find them.  They will be able to give examples of why a scientist might want to study them. Students will also be able to identify several bones found within the pellets and sort them by species. 
I have been a public school teacher for 10 years and have taught this specific topic to many students, ranging from the age of elementary all the way through high school level biology.
Reference guides will be provided to the students by the teacher. They will be posted in the classroom before class starts and can be printed out or a digital version can be referenced. 

Students are highly recommended to purchase at least 1 owl pellet before the class starts. There are many options on amazon

- For 5 owl pellets only: https://www.amazon.com/Owl-Pellets-Set-of-5/dp/B00192CC8Q/ref=sr_1_12?crid=R23GF304ZPGI&dchild=1&keywords=owl+pellets&qid=1586027508&sprefix=owl+%2Caps%2C234&sr=8-12

- Owl Pellet Dissection kit: https://www.amazon.com/Amazing-Owl-Pellet-Dissection-Kit/dp/B07C5GL91T/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=owl+pellets+for+dissection+kit&qid=1586027879&sr=8-6

No owl pellet? No Problem! There is still a ton to do in the class and an optional activity will be given in place of the dissection.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The students are encouraged to get an owl pellet for this class.  Inside the owl pellets are real bones from the organisms that the owl ingested.  This is super neat to most students, but just keep this in mind incase your student is super squeamish.

Hi my name is Kristin Griffith and I have a deep love and passion for all that is science.  I believe that there is so much to learn if we just stop for a minute to examine the world around us.  I love to help people see the world through...
