Owl Investigation Video Conference

CCE Owl Pellet Investigation

Mrs. Abby Morse's 3rd grade students of Champ Cooper Elementary connected with the Discovery Center of Springfield through a video conference to learn about animal habits, adaptations of predators and prey, and population control through food webs. Students were able to examine different animal skulls and identify the three different types of teeth to determine the animals role in an ecosystem. Finally, students dissected owl pellets and used the bones found to determine the type of prey.
