It was inevitable that we would get to the part in our nature study where we dissect owl pellets.
It wasn’t as gross or as smelly as one would be made to think, although one boy in our co-op wanted nothing to do with it!
Thankfully that wasn’t the case with our kids. Remember the Opossum skeleton their father brought home for them from the golf course?
The best part of this lab was trying to take the tiny bones and match them to the bone chart. It was exciting to find a match and I was very impressed with the quality of the illustrations. Pumpkin (4 years old) had no problem matching the bones to their correct placement on the chart.
