Today we had a very exciting science lab! Students learned about owls and how they eat their prey. Then each student got their own owl pellet to dissect. Students worked hard to dissect their pellet using their fingers, tweezers, and probes. Students categorized and sorted the bones they found and used a bone ID chart to identify what animal their owl ate! Ask your child what kind of skull was inside their owl pellet!
Today students worked in groups and became experts on one of five major animal groups (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals). Once they found all the important information they then shared their research with the rest of the class. Everyone took notes on other the findings of the other groups. Check your children's Guided Notes tonight for more details and read over pp. 68-69 with them! They have a take home quiz with them, as well.
This page is dedicated to the work and research my students do each day.
