Owls Unit of Study Highlights
Whooo whooo in the trees…..
Soft swooping across the field…..
Lightning fast strike on a mouse or rabbit……
Owls are silent hunters in the night.
Owls are fascinating birds of prey or raptors. They are great at keeping rodent populations at bay. They come in a variety of sizes, and live in many different environments.
Learning about owls can encourage children to learn about other birds and animals in their world. The more children know, the better able they are to care for the earth. Through hands-on activities, children:
• Learn about the many owls through non-fiction books
• Use ‘owl’ rulers to measure the sizes of different owls
• Make a unique handprint owl
• Pretend to be an owl to catch a mouse
Help children discover the wonderful world of owls. It will be a ‘hoot’!!
