In science lab we will be learning all about owls. We will be focusing on LS1.B: Growth and Development of Organisms. LS1.A: Structure and function of a bird’s nest. LS2-1 Develop a model to describe the movement of energy & matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment.
Owls are pretty fascinating birds. Their eyesight alone is amazing and their talons are razor sharp. They can rotate their heads 270 degrees. There are around 200 different species of owls around the world. Most are nocturnal and hunt at night. Their feathers help them blend into their surroundings and they have what is called “silent flight” so they can sneak up on their prey.
In class we will be learning all about these fun creatures and dissecting owl pellets. We will also be building bird nests and playing an owl eye game. It should be a “HOOT!”
