Our project learning group has been studying owls the past couple of weeks. Everyone watched this documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTV1qoceV-U
Then last week we did art projects based on owl anatomy.
First we had owl skulls:
Alex made this demo out of model magic, small pastic cups and ping pong balls. This was to demonstrate the owls head and eye movement.
We made wing models out of paper and brads: http://robynchloe.wordpress.com/2013/02/14/movement/
We also made feathers our of paper and coffee straws.
This week we dissected owl pellets:
We bought our owl pellets here and would highly recommend them. We have done this once before and our pellets didn't have near the bones that these did. We also had a wide variety of bones from different animals. I will post pics once we get the bones all clean and mounted.
