East End dissection education


The fifth-graders at East End Elementary have the Wilmington Schools Foundation to thank for being able to participate in a lab dissecting owl pellets. The students first learned about ecosystems, food webs, food chains and how we are all a part of making the ecosystem work. After learning about the roles of primary consumers and secondary consumers, students were able to understand the importance of owls in our ecosystem. In dissecting the owl pellets, the students could see the prey that the owls fed on because after they dissected the pellets, they reconstructed the bones so that they could identify the organisms. One student said that, “this lab was the best lab of the whole year so far.” We thank you Wilmington Foundation for supporting our learning.
