Owl Pellet Dissection
Today in Mr. Schwalm's Science class students dissected owl pellets as part of their evolution unit. They were looking at the hunting adaptations that owls have. They found mole, shrew, bird and rodent bones. Each studnet got a pellet and a pair of tweezers. They dug through fine hairs to find a variety of different bones, the favorite being a skull. It was a great experience for the students and they had a lot of fun with it.
