In this engaging science lab, Mrs. Shani Hicks' fourth grade class at WDE explored food chains and webs by dissecting owl pellets! They found out that owls swallow their prey, and then regurgitate the fur and bones. Through this dissection, students were able to compare bones from their pellets to the bone chart to determine the types of prey owls feed on. By doing this, they were able to trace the flow of energy from the sun to producers and consumers, and classify owls in the food chain. Submitted by Jessica Dawkins.
