"What a child digs for becomes his own possession." ~ Charlotte Mason
I believe the above quote wholeheartedly! As a homeschool mom, I am ALWAYS on the lookout for ways my students can practice self-education.
I discovered "Owl-Pellet" dissection years ago as I taught and led this dissection in a classroom. I was amazed to see the wonder in each child's face as they "dug for possessions".
What are Owl Pellets?
Owls cannot digest all of the "food" they ingest. As a result, they "cough up" pellets that contain the undigested parts. These pellets cannot be sanitized until the dissection is over. It is very important to wear gloves and be careful as your child explores the contents of each pellet. In addition, these smalls parts present a choking hazard. Please supervise this table exploration. THIS KIT GOES WITH "OUR OUTDOOR HOUR CURRICULUM"
