Lesson Plan (DOCX) with Membership

Students evaluate two claims and evidence statements and then write their own. Students then share out and evaluate each others as a class. This worksheet helps students to build their claim evidence and reasoning skills.

Owl Pellets Student Handout
Owl pellets can be used to teach a part of the natural food chain. They can also be used to teach skeletal structure of rodents. Owl pellets are compact undigested parts which the owl eats. The owl regurgitates these compact pellets which contain fur, bones, etc. of small rodents. Dry pellets will not smell or be unpleasant for students to handle.
