Category Description for Owl Pellet Kits:

Let me dispel a common misunderstanding - owl pellets are indigestible fragments that an owl throws up, not owl poop! Makes it much more appealing, huh? And why are owl pellets so neat? Because you can dissect them and find the bones of the small critters that they have eaten, and literally see what the owl had for dinner! Both of the kits (2 or 3 pellets) contain all the materials you'll need, including 2-3 owl pellets, a small magnifying glass, tweezers, and a "Field Biology Guide." The guide is 12 pages, and discusses what owl pellets are, where they are found, how to dissect the pellet, follow-up projects after the dissection, how to identify specific owl prey by skulls, a key to lower jaw bones often found in owl pellets in the Pacific Northwest, suggested further reading, and a skeleton diagram that will help you reconstruct your own if you have enough bones, plus a bone sorting chart, so you can take stock of what you have. A refill kit is also available and contains two owl pellets so you can relive the experience with another student (no guide, tools or chart included in refill kit). An in-depth project to accompany a bird unit or food chain study. - Jess

My daughter wanted to dissect something, we choose this as our first leap into that. I choose this kit because it also came with a guide so that you know what your looking at!

Awesome!
My son & i loved this kit, it was perfect for our owl study unit. We found that wetting the pellet made it easier & faster to take out the bones & delicate skulls. That’s just what worked for us. We did use gloves. The information booklet is very nice & helpful. Great kit, we recommend it!

This kit makes for a great hands-on science activity when your homeschool has hit a slump! Put away the books and pull out this owl pellet kit instead Your children are sure to sit up and take notice Besides the owl pellets there are also tweezers and a great guide book included The guide book is a concise explanation of what owl pellets are where they are found and how to dissect them I was surprised at how easy it actually was to identify what we dissected thanks to the remarkably realistic diagrams Although my daughter started off with two pairs of tweezers not daring to touch the pellet by the end of the experiment she was holding the tiny bones and clumps of fur in her fingers! Experiments like this one give children self-confidence and renew their wonder for learning! We used the Owls Zoobooks as a supplement to this project But it was as much an experiment about small rodents as it was about owls!
