Provide your classroom with an unforgettable, hands-on lesson on ecology and the food chain. Your students will dissect owl pellets to study the skeletal remains of the raptor's prey and, using a dichotomous key, identify the species consumed. Also construct a rodent skeleton from the recovered skeletal prey. With their findings, students will construct a food web, compiling a summary of the owl's diet in order to estimate the diversity of the prey available in the ecosystem.

This kit can be highly motivational to students for regular class or independent study. Both teacher and student guides are professionally produced and include easy-to-follow directions. Illustrations identify skulls of common prey species and charts are provided for students to record the data collected. Students learn about energy transfer through food chains while observing skeletal features which identify prey animals consumed. Additional studies can be conducted to evaluate animal populations within the owl's habitat, make calculations to estimate the biomass of the prey animals, or investigate the skeletal anatomy from the taxonomic features of the prey animals. 15 student worksheets, and Teacher's guide. Grades 7 and up.

Teachers and students use professionally prepared guides to study food chains from regurgitated owl pellets. Kit allows students to investigate the diets of owls as birds of prey. Pellets are easily dissected to expose skulls and other skeletal parts. Undigested remains of animals provide bones, teeth, hair, or feathers as evidence of the prey animals. Charts of skulls and skeletons are available to assist students to 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 worksheets, and a Teacher's guide. Grades 3-7.
