Owl Pellet Dissection Kits
My sister-in-law sent us these owl pellet dissection kits, and we LOVED them! I wanted to share with all my homeschool friends, because this is REALLY COOL! The owl pellets are the coughed up fur and bones from animals the owls eat (gross, I know)! They come with charts and diagrams so you can identify animal bones and skulls, and you really become the a scientist.
There are a lot of companies online with great resources for dissection kits and post studies, like this one:
Here are some pictures of my kiddos dissecting the pellets and matching the bones to the charts! It lead to so many discussions of predatory birds, and we went out to identify so many other predators in nature. Great stuff!
