How can we learn about owls without dissecting some Owl puke?
I know right….we’d be kicked out of the Homeschool Co-op if we tried to pull a stunt like that!
Actually, we didn’t dissect “real” owl puke, we used the synthetic stuff.
We learned just as much about the dietary needs of owls, and I didn’t have to scream at my children for rubbing their eyes while dissecting.
Though I did startle the boy when I noticed him putting the bird beak in his mouth…..totally freaky
(Don’t worry…..I made him puke it up……like an owl…….there is no need to call CPS)
Anyway, I made a printable book to go along with the Owl Pellet Dissection, and it’s now up on the site with photo instructions for how to dissect your own owl pellet.
(Thrilling stuff isn’t it)
Trust me, the kids love it.
