Students dissect the pellets to observe patterns of what owls need to survive, bones and fur discarded in waste.
Students use evidence gathered from the pellets to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.
Students collect data, analyze and interpret.
Students use evidence gathered from the Barn Owl Pellets to use in a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals and the palaces they live.
Students learn about the predator-prey relationships in nature.
Students use evidence gathered from the Barn Owl Pellets to develop models to describe in animals' food was once energy from the sun.
Students learn about the predator-prey relationships in nature including life cycle of prey.
Students dissect the pellets to observe to construct an explanation for the anatomical similarities and differences among modern organisms and the fossil record to infer evolutionary relationships.
Students develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among the living and nonliving parts of the owl's ecosystem.
Students use large data sets (gathered from the dissection) and mathematical concepts to support explanations and arguments.
As matter and energy flow through different organizational levels of living systems, chemical elements are recombined in different ways to form different products.
Students use classroom data to support explanations of factors that affect carrying capacity of ecosystems at different scales.
Owls pellet dissection is an effective method to launch a mathematical representation to support claims for the cycling of matter and flow of energy among organisms in an ecosystem.
Students use large data sets (gathered from the dissection) and mathematical concepts to support explanations and arguments with revisions.
Dissecting the owl pellets recovers the bones from prey. Students reconstruct the skeleton of the herbivores to identify and count prey. Use charts and research life cycles, energy flow charts, ecosystems and evolutionary links.
