Sr. Vargas's fifth grade classes had fun dissecting owl pellets!  Pellets are a record of what owls have eaten, and scientists can study them to learn more about the owl and the ecosystems in which they live. When kids dissect owl pellets, they can see and identify the tiny bones from that owl's meal, can learn about the owl's diet and place in the food web.
