Dissecting owl pellets can be a great lesson option. We have been studying birds in science this year. This past week we studied the bird digestive system and I decided it was a great time to dissect owl pellets with the kids. I will share a few pics from our experience but I wanted you to have many resources available to you should you decide to do it. That is why I have put together a great list of posts about dissecting owl pellets so you can be prepared.

How to Dissect Owl Pellets

  • Start by unwrapping your owl pellet.
  • Before using anything to dissect it, look at the outside and hypothesize about what you might find inside of it.
  • Use your tools to slowly pull away the layers.
  • As you pull items out, set aside any structures that might be important to study after the dissection.
