Owl Pellets

We recently got to explore owl pellets with friends.  We brought extras home for further adventures.  A couple resources on the topic were just up our alley.  Weeks later we are still singing the Owl Pellets song.  We also got to watch as a baby owl ejects a pellet.  Regurgitation is pretty awesome!  We were able to use the handy chart to identify which creature had been eaten by an owl.  Life cycles and sanitation and patience were all explored with this project.  My son was thrilled to dissect more owl pellets today in a different science class.
