BFA Information Night 1-19-2017

Owl Pellets in Kindergarten
Kindergarten teachers purchase owl pellets each year for science work with their young age group. The pellets are completely dry and contain the fur, feathers and bones of small wildlife such as shrews, rodents, voles, moles and birds. Individual students have no idea what kind of animal(s) their pellet contain until they dissect it. Each bone extracted is placed on a skeleton chart of the animals mentioned above. By seeing where bones line up on the chart, the students are able to determine the animal their owl consumed.
Initially children were skeptical about working with owl "poop". But then as soon as the detective work began they were fascinated with the entire process. This yearly project stimulates many questions and expands student's vocabulary and skills.
