Barn Owl Pellets

Mrs. Ferreiro's picture

Today we studied Barn Owl pellets.  The students got into partners and took toothpicks and gently picked through their pellets.  You could hear the Ooooohs, Ahhhhhhhhs, EWWWWW GROSS, COOL, I DON'T LIKE THIS, and I HAVE TO RUN TO THE BATHROOM (to throw up)!  It was a mixture of excitement and curiosity.  It brought me back to the time I did this in school and I jumped in and scraped through some bones.  It was so cool!  This week the students will be able to compare and contrast human bones and animal bones with a Double Bubble Thinking Map!
