Mrs. Silverman's Second
|Our class has been very busy learning about owls. We read books, saw videos, visited websites, did the Owl Prowl online activities, dissected owl pellets, wrote poems and skits, created illustrations and had an owl workshop in our classroom by Sweet Briar Nature Center. We sure did learn a lot about owls!|
Today I went to Mr. Eaton's class to do a science project on owl pellets. We had to open pellets and it was fun. Then we had to take the bones and the fur out. After that we saw what the owl ate by putting it together. Mine was a rat. And it was very hard gluing it together.
Today we went to Mr. Eaton's class to open owl pellets. We were looking for fur, feathers and bones. When we got back we glued our bones to oak tag.

|Today we had real live owls
come in our classroom. I never knew that one of the owls was blind. It was a
screech owl and it was living in a tree in a backyard. The people that were living
in the house cut down the tree that the owl as living in. Poor owl landed on his
head. the family was going to get it some help but they decided to keep the owl for
a pet. But they didn't know what to feed the owl. They knew that it eats meat
but what kind of meat? So they gave it a piece of salami. That almost made it
die. Well they brought the owl to a doctor . The screech owl survived.
I'm glad it did.
|Today we had live owls come
into our classroom. They took a little owl out at first. That owl was blind
because she fell on her head. The hawk was small compared to the barred owl.
The barn owl was so noisy when they took her out. The barn owl is a lot different
then the other owls. All of the owls have hollow bones because they have to fly
fast. The barred owl's eyes are big compared to the hawk's eyes. The owl can't
move it's eye. An owl has a big opening on the side of it's head. Not all owls are
nocturnal. There are 162 species of owls. Owls eat rodents. All birds
have feathers. That's what makes a bird a bird. The snowy owl lives in the
tundra. We saw 4 owls. And that's what I learned today.
live owls came to our class and I learned owls have bigger eyes then hawks. Not all
owls are nocturnal. The barn owl was very noisy. Owl bones are hollow.
And the screech owl was blind. Owls have huge wings. Owls have stiff
feathers. Owls can hear a little mouse 75 feet away. And owls can hunt food
without making a sound.
owls and a hawk came to my class. There was an owl that was blind. And there
was a barn owl and a barred owl. Also a screech owl that is the blind one. A
hawk's eyes are smaller than an owl's. Owls hunt at night. An owl has two
slits for ears. We compated the hawk and the owl. We had so much fun with the
owls and hawk.
