Owl Pellets

In this activity (page 7 of the PDF), learners will investigate the contents of owl pellets. Learners will discover how owls digest their food as well as the kind of animals they eat. Although this activity was included as a post-visit for a workshop about the human body, it also makes an excellent stand-alone activity.
