Here's this week's glimpse into what's happening in and out of our classrooms in the day school! These feature lessons, activities, centers, and saunters from a different classroom each week.
Today's feature: Explorers Examine Owl Pellets
The explorers invited parent and local owl expert Matt Larson to teach us about owls, their place in the food chain, what they like to eat, and where they live. We saw pictures of an owl roost, where long eared owls gather and then examined owl pellets to see what kinds of animal bones were inside!
This hands on activity brings nature right into the classroom and will be followed by a saunter to find signs of owls close to our own school! Students are learning about animals in winter, the food chain, and interconnection as they realize that many animals share the same environment and depend on one another!
