    What People Are Saying

    Great for small class

  • I purchased these owl pellets to dissect with a homeschool group. The kids had a wonderful time finding bones and trying to figure out what part of the animal it was. The educational packet that came with it was very helpful. I do suggest using some tweezers with this, it would have helped us.
    So cool for my Middle School students

  • This was honestly one of the coolest things we did all year. You could easily put together the different bones of the animals once we got them all separated. The instruction/picture guide that came with the kit was very user friendly and matched the bones perfectly. Highly recommend!!!!
    Fun kit!

  • I purchased this kit to use with children ranging from age 7 to 15. The kids were all very interested. The smaller size pellets have just as many bones to find inside and they are easier for the younger kids to handle as compared to the jumbo pellets we purchased separately.

      Economy Owl Pellet Kit , 5-10 Student

      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:

      • Work in a place separate from eating and food preparation areas.
      • Use disposable latex gloves or nitrile gloves during the dissection and cleanup.
      • Use a disposable tray or plate to contain the owl pellet during dissection. Do not dissect directly on desks or table tops.
      • Use only dissection tools provided. Do not let children use pencils or other personal items for dissection. Kids like to use our economical plastic forceps to take apart the owl pellet.
      • Use a sanitizer with paper towels or disposable sanitizing wipes to thoroughly wash hands, work areas, and any dissection tools when finished. Household bleach in a 1:10 solution can be used as a sanitizer.
      • Make sure everyone thoroughly washes their hands with soap and water after the dissection and cleanup.

      WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

      Shipping Note: This item contains preserved specimens and only ships to a street address in the 50 US states.
