Product Description

Classroom Owl Pellet Disection Lesson

Like other birds, an Owl cannot chew their food, therefore they must swallow their prey whole or tear it into pieces before being swallowed.  Several hours after an owl eats, the undigested portion (skeleton, claws, teeth, fur and feathers) is formed into a pellet and regurgitated.  The contents of these pellets can tell a scientist many things about the owl’s daily life.  In some cases, researchers and scientist have discovered a species of animals that was not known to live in the area.

In the “Wise Old Owl” activity students will:

  • Investigate their own sanitized owl pellet to discover the contents
  • Sort the bones according to the “Bone Chart” worksheet provided to identify the prey found in the pellet
  • Reconstruct the prey’s skeleton according to the Lab Worksheet instructions provided
  • Learn about the life of an owl and how important owls are to humans by controlling the rodent population

 Each student will receive their owl pellet, probes, hand lens, and plates to investigate the contents of an owl pellet.  Student worksheets are provided to allow the student to record their observations and findings.

 The Teacher’s Guide provides background information on the life of an owl, facts about their survival and additional topics for discussion.
