S.T.E.M. Experiment for 2nd – 5th Graders

The 2nd – 5th graders participated in a S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) experiment on owl pellets during the month of April.

Twenty five groups, comprised of a student from each grade level, sought out information regarding owls and owl pellets from books and the Internet.  The groups then dissected owl pellets, labeled and graphed bones found in the pellets and drew food chain diagrams of rodents and birds that their particular owl ate before regurgitating the pellet.  The groups constructed a poster of their findings and the posters were displayed for Open House visitors to view.

The students learned how to collaborate with one another as they increased their knowledge of owls and owl food chains.
