Description: PD02 is a Classroom Kit containing 16 Large Owl Pellets, 32 wooden probes, and a teachers guide with reproducible student sheets. The student sheets include skeleton and bone charts and pellet activities. Each Owl pellet is individually wrapped, heat sterilised, gamma irradiated and is safe for use within the classroom. Most birds cannot chew their food, and owls are no exception. Owl pellets are masses of undigested parts of food that owl species occasionally regurgitate. The contents of the owl pellet depends on its diet, but can include the exoskeletons of insects, indigestible plant matter, bones, fur, feathers, bills, claws, and teeth.
Owl pellets are safe and easy for students of all ages to work with. Excellent for hands-on, enquiry-based learning, owl pellet dissection activities will excite and engage your students as they discover insights into raptor feeding habits, food webs and more.
