Dissecting and studying owl pellets is an extremely popular science learning activity for kids! This economical low-cost owl pellet kit is perfect for a family or for 5-10 students in a classroom. Your kids will discover for themselves what foods barn owls like to eat by dissecting their own owl pellet. Each owl pellet is foil wrapped and dry heat sterilized.
The kit includes a six-page teacher's guide with information on food webs and habitats, the unique anatomy of a barn owl, plus three reproducible worksheets. Students can work individually or in pairs. You get five small owl pellets (about 1.25" long), the teacher's guide, 10 wooden probes, and five student worksheets (also reproducible for more students) with dissection instructions and a diagram of a rodent skeleton to help identify bones.
You can purchase multiples of these kits based on the size of your classroom, or just order extra small owl pellets.
Safety Information: Our owl pellets have been dry heat sterilized for a minimum of 4 hours at 250°F to kill bacteria and viruses naturally present. Even so, we highly recommend that you follow these guidelines when working with owl pellets:
