About the Workshop
A unique activity that allows students to explore and investigate topics such as relationships and interactions within ecosystems, animal structure and function, and much more, owl pellet dissection has become a staple in elementary and middle grade classrooms. In this workshop, participants will learn how to use owl pellets with a range of grade levels (2-8) to teach a wide variety of STEM topics. After dissecting their own owl pellets in student mode, participants will have the opportunity to review the three dimensions of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) as well as their own curricula to identify areas where owl pellets can be used to support instruction.
- Learn to use owl pellets across different grades (2-8) to meet a variety of performance expectations
- Participants experience dissecting an owl pellet in student mode.
- Participants review the three dimensions of the NGSS and find places where owl pellets can be used to support instruction.
