Photo #91/365: Owl Pellets
It been a busy week starting with my trip to Edcamp Omaha last Saturday, Iowa Test of Basic Skills, and presenting a technology PD on Wednesday. We wrapped up the week with one of the highlights of fourth grade, dissecting owl pellets. This is part of our Foss Science unit on The Human Body.
The actual dissection is done with toothpicks. Everyone works to identify the bones they find inside of the owl pellet. The kids had a ball, and they learned a lot.
By the time I got home, I was so exhausted that I crashed on the couch.
