For the last day of Cyan’s wood study I bought her an owl pellet to dissect! She spent about an hour and a half pulling it apart and analyzing the bones that were inside.
The sheet that came with the owl pellet kit had a question and answer part that she got to fill out. She figured out that this particular owl only ate about one prey per day. She also discovered that it’s prey that it ate that day was a rodent/mouse. She found most of the larger bones and a few of the vertebrae and was able to put the skeleton together with the help of the diagram pages to see how big the rodent was.
This whole study has been amazing! If you haven’t looked into Winter’s Promise before, I highly suggest it. It is so well thought out and usually a lot of fun involved in the curriculum. This science curriculum has been wonderful so far!
