Exploring Owls

This Exploring Owls lesson plan also includes:

What can young scientists discover from dissecting an owl pellet? Explore the owl food chain, beginning with an introduction to these predatory birds. Suggested strategies here include creating a podcast and purchasing a poster, however this could easily be simplified to reading an informational picture book (consider Sally Tagholm's book Barn Owl). Small groups dissect owl pellets and reconstruct the bones to determine what type of animal the owl ate. Check out the online link as either a demonstration or virtual alternative to this activity. Next, they gather information to create a class book of owl facts and illustrations which each group presents. Consider assigned topics for research to focus groups.
