Hoot - Science Unit
In this unit, 7th grade students will study many of the owls of North America, including the burrowing owl which most of our students became familiar with as they read the book Hoot by Carl Hiaasen in their literature classes. We will read and learn about the main characteristics of owls and their ecosystem. We will dissect owl pellets and make food webs. At the end of the unit, the students will be working with partners to research a particular owl and make an informative poster to present to the class.
