Owl and Mouse

Students explore connections between organisms in a habitat with this interactive program about owls and mice. A whole-group introduction focuses students on the challenges animals face in the wild. Students examine specimen skins and wings, then review an organism's basic needs. While observing mice and other prey species, students discuss their needs and think about where they might be found. Students make a mouse out of clay to take home. They also look closely at an owl mount, discuss adaptations, and dissect an owl pellet.
