5th Grade Science Owl Pellet Investigation

Mrs. Worth’s 5th grade science class has been learning about ecosystems and food chains. They were able to dissect owl pellets this week and further investigate the diet and food chain of an owl! The students spent the first day exploring their owl pellets and separating bones from fur to start to identify them. On the next day, they finished identifying the bones and hypothesized what animal(s) their owl had eaten. The students are currently working on completing their data sheets and lab reports. In the last part of this lab students will work together to reconstruct the skeleton of their animal.
