Who knows...?

Dissecting Owl Pellets
As part of our unit on endangered species, we are dissecting owl pellets to get a sense of what sorts of animals live in the owls' ecosystem. By examining the teeth of the animals, we are able to make inferences about what the owls' prey ate too.
Monday, January 27 from 2-3:00 we will be displaying our books on endangered species and giving oral presentations inspired by TED Talks. The format will be somewhat of an Open House, with visitors able to view the books and listen to the talks.  Join us if you can!
Tuesday, January 28 from 1-2:00 we will have a guest speaker from US Fish and Wildlife, Mickey Novak, who will be bringing samples of confiscated items made from endangered species.  Buyer Beware!
