Owl Pellet Study Kit for Classrooms

Item# PM-OWLCLAS

Learn about barn owls and what foods they like to eat as you dissect an owl pellet! This complete classroom owl pellet study kit includes materials for 30 students plus a six page teacher's guide with information on food webs and habitats, the unique anatomy of a barn owl, and more.

The classroom owl pellet study kit is designed for up to 30 students to work in pairs and includes 15 large owl pellets (1.5" or larger) and 30 student worksheets with full dissection instructions as well as a diagram of a rodent skeleton to help identify bones. The teacher's guide has background information, additional ideas for classroom activities, and includes two additional reproducible worksheets: food web and a dichotomous key for skull identification. The large owl pellets in this kit are foil wrapped and dry heat sterilized.

Safety Information: Our owl pellets have been dry heat sterilized for a minimum of 4 hours at 250°F to kill bacteria and viruses naturally present. Even so, we highly recommend that you follow these guidelines when working with owl pellets:

  • Work in a place separate from eating and food preparation areas.
  • Use disposable latex gloves or nitrile gloves during the dissection and cleanup.
  • Use a disposable tray or plate to contain the owl pellet during dissection. Do not dissect directly on desks or table tops.
  • Use only dissection tools provided. Do not let children use pencils or other personal items for dissection. Kids like to use our economical plastic forceps to take apart the owl pellet.
  • Use a sanitizer with paper towels or disposable sanitizing wipes to thoroughly wash hands, work areas, and any dissection tools when finished. Household bleach in a 1:10 solution can be used as a sanitizer.
  • Make sure everyone thoroughly washes their hands with soap and water after the dissection and cleanup.

Owl Pellets and Jr. Highers! Review by
This kit was great to use with our Classical Conversation group of kids. The handouts are fabulous and the kids really enjoyed matching the bones they found with the printout of the skeleton on the back. The tools worked well, but we found a little utility knife was also needed to help separate the pellet. They had multiple specimens in each pellet. I would highly recommend this product if you have a large group of students to work with.
Loved it!!! Review by
I ordered this kit to use for our co-op middle school science lab (5th - 8th). Several of them thought it was gross, but then they really got interested & I had a hard time getting them to stop & clean up. The pellets were all nice size & FULL of bones & other stuff. Definitely worth it!!!!
Attention Grabber! Review by
Easy to order, quick shipping, but most of all .... grabbed my 4th grader's attention as they were "lost in the process" of this experiment!
WOW!!!!!! Review by
This is an exceptional product and a wonderful way to spark interest in science and God's creation! Can be used to study owls, food chains, ecosystems and reconstruct the skeletal system of the prey the owls consumed! Absolutely fantastic teaching tool!!!!! Very highly recommended!!!!
Great value Review by
These large owl pellets are a bit messy but so much fun especially with the key to the bones. Thank you!
