Science: Pollinating Bees and Owl Pellets

Hands-on learning in science class last week! Students in third grade studied plants and pollinators. They designed and created a bee model using a variety of materials.  Students learned to identify the parts of a honeybee and describe the structure and function of each part. In fourth grade, students have learned about the human machine! Starting with an examination of owls and how they hunt. Students investigated how all bodies work as a system.  This week, fourth graders dissected owl pellets and analyzed and interpreted data they collected from the dissection to identify bones of prey species found in an owl pellet.
