Little Scientists Learn About the Letter “O”

Mrs. Haugh’s Kindergarten class explores the letter “O” by dissecting owl pellets in the Lower School Science Lab.


With lab coats on and tweezers in hand, students pulled apart owl pellets (sanitized and preserved for scientific use) in search of tiny bones. They learned about what owls eat and how to identify bones from the various animals.

Each student used a microscope to inspect their bones and pair them with an animal on a chart. This detail-oriented and careful work gave kindergarteners the chance to focus and see their diligence pay off!

Whether it’s learning a new letter, or exploring nature, these little scientists are ready to take on their next letter!
