OWL – Birds of Prey

To further explore the animals and habitats unit in Science,  the grade 4 classes had the exciting chance to meet two birds of prey in person! Snoopy the Owl and Nelly the Peregrine Falcon.  The students found this experience exhilarating; to see these amazing raptors in real life.  They learned ways to keep these animals safe in their natural habitat, and learned about their amazing physical characteristics that make raptors the the fastest and most feared birds in the wild.  Grade 4s also dissected owl pellets to examine the prey of these awesome creatures.
