looking at bones
Students had a special treat when they came back from the Reservoir field trip. Each class had two
Owl Pellets to dissect. Using a Dichotomous Key, they dissected the pellets with toothpicks and forks.Carefully they pried away the fur to find bones from the owl's prey.
They used deductive reasoning to figure out what type of mammal the Owl had consumed.
This was simply Amazing to watch!!
One of my Favorites.
Mrs. Doherty and Mrs. Cunha's classes rotated in to my room for this scientific experience.
Many students were leary of touching the pellet thinking that it was poop. I explained to them that it wasn't and eventually with the help of some surgical gloves all students enjoyed this hands on activity.
