Combing Through Fur To Find Bones #OwlPellets (Almost) Wordless Wednesday With Linky



Last week in our homeschooling group (Classical Conversations) the kids got to dissect owl pellets. It was gross but a great experience all at the same time! I was in my 4 year old son’s class helping, here are a few pictures of my little guy in action looking for bones in the pellet which, by the way there were lots of! We matched the bones up – he found mice and shrew bones!

This was a great hands on learning experience for my 4 older children. Have your kids ever dissected owl pellets?

    I did this but much older than age 4! It’s great that you have such hands on experiments in your home school group!

  4. I don’t remember doing that; the frog was enough when I was in school. I’m too squeamish

  5. I did this in 6th grade at a science camp we went to for school. It was really cool. My kids would think this was awesome.
