Owl Pellets are Done!

Today we finished dissecting our owl pellets. The students placed the bones from their owl pellets on an owl pellet dissection chart. We found some really cool things in our owl pellets. We had entire rodent skulls, tails that were still stuck together, a lot of lower jaws, and one student even found a bird skull. This was a really cool project and I am so glad that the students got to have this experience. If you would like to check out the website that we used in class it is

The Ted Turkey projects are due this Tuesday. I have had some really cool things in the past few years. I have had cheerleaders, Santa Claus, the Chick Fil A cow, football players, spacemen, army men, robots, and more. Please remember to glue the turkey onto a piece of cardboard or the back of a cereal box to make it more sturdy. Also, please don't just have your child color the turkey. I want them to be creative!! They also must have 7 days of journals and neatness counts.

We will be having Thanksgiving rotations next Monday and Tuesday. The students will go to each of the third grade teachers and participate in a different Thanksgiving themed activity. All of the activities align with our third grade curriculum and the North Carolina Standard Course of Study.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends.
