Elementary Owl Pellet Kit
Teachers and students use professionally prepared guides to study food chains from regurgitated owl pellets.
This exciting kit allows students to investigate the diets of owls as birds of prey.
The pellets are easily dissected to expose the skulls and other skeletal parts of animals consumed by owls.
The undigested remains of animals provide bones, teeth, hair, or feathers as evidence of the prey animals.
Charts of skulls and skeletons help students identify the prey animals. Additional exercises can be conducted such as reconstructing animal skeletons or construction of food chains from the skeletons found in the pellets.
Safe for student use, this kit contains 15 dried and fumigated owl pellets wrapped in aluminum, 15 student work sheets, and a teacher’s guide.
