  • We used these for a home school group ages 4-12. Everyone was able to participate and having latex gloves really helped with clean up. Products was high quality! Several kids found skulls!

  • As well as being a homeschool mom, I teach science at a private school. When I found out very few of my HS Biology class had ever done an owl pellet I ordered this kit, after weighing all the choices. It ended up giving the most bang for the buck. I had 30 students doing the dissection. The only thing I added were foam plates and gloves. The pellets are large, the handouts excellent - loved the dichotomous key! The tools are included. Just fyi, I don't think the teacher guide included is the same thing as the Owl Pellet Guide: Advanced, but it is enough. Also, we saved the skulls and used them for another mammal lab. Highly recommended kit.

      Owl Pellet Study Kit for Classrooms

      Learn about barn owls and what foods they like to eat as you dissect an owl pellet! This complete classroom owl pellet study kit includes materials for 30 students plus a six page teacher's guide with information on food webs and habitats, the unique anatomy of a barn owl, and more.

      The classroom owl pellet study kit is designed for up to 30 students to work in pairs and includes 15 large owl pellets (1.5" or larger) and 30 student worksheets with full dissection instructions as well as a diagram of a rodent skeleton to help identify bones. The teacher's guide has background information, additional ideas for classroom activities, and includes two additional reproducible worksheets: food web and a dichotomous key for skull identification. The large owl pellets in this kit are foil wrapped and dry heat sterilized.

      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.
