Elementary Science Activities
Owl pellet projects can lead to so many other related classroom science activities. For example, after learning about the prey of the owl and the way they eat and digest it, you may want to teach students about other predatory animals. This could lead in many different directions, depending on how long you want this science activity to last. An owl project can also lead to a study of the creatures that are owls' prey, like rats, mice, voles, and shrews.
You may want to study niches, populations and habitats, or even the combination of living and non-living things into ecosystems. Elementary classroom projects that study these are so interesting for students, because they usually involve field trips. On the way, you can search for owl pellets!
Other elementary science activities that connect with owls include a study of animal homes, hands-on projects like building bat or animal houses, and a study of the sensory development of owls and other predators (like their well-developed hearing and vision). Every species has a function in the energy cycle, so you can tie into the food chain and the energy cycle as well.
