To close out our science unit on ecosystems, students got to dissect owl pellets. Prior to examining their owl pellet, students learned about the food web of a common barn owl and made a prediction as to what types of bones they would find inside their pellet. Then, they dug in and see what they could find! Ask your child tonight if they can explain what an owl pellet is and why it is helpful to owls.
