Some awesome details about our Owl Pellets and pieces!
* Our Owl Pellets come from Common Barn Owls in Oregon and Washington State, USA
(Heat Sterilized against germs and microbes)
** These are “softer” pellets and pellet sections that are easier to separate and identify than tightly compacted pellets.
We found this to be very helpful with younger students. This will allow more time to enjoy the experiment with less bone breakage.
There is a sufficient amount of pellet material for 9 participants.
Each pack yields A LOT of bones for sorting and investigating.
Includes a detailed bone sorting chart for the students to glue the bones onto and take them home!
This is a favorite experiment with our review team :)
Some extra information about our Crayfish!
The preserved crayfish are originally prepared using formaldehyde. After preservation, the specimens are flushed and
then stored in Nebanol (non-toxic solution). Gloves are not required, but students may request them.
Whether you use gloves or not, remind the students not to touch their eyes, nose or mouth during the experiment.
Store at normal room temperature for 6-9 months in original packaging.
NOTE: The crayfish are for a viewing experiment only.
If your older students want to dissect, we offer Dissecting Surgical Scissors and Scalpels.
You can find several great dissection videos online.
1. Why do you only include 1 Crayfish Specimen?
The students are NOT dissecting the Crayfish. They will only be viewing and comparing them to the anatomy chart.
Make sure to ask lots of guided questions to get the investigation started.
Each student will get a Forcep (rotate to wk 10), Wooden Probe, and External Anatomy Chart (PDF) to participate.
The Consumable Box DOES NOT include Crayfish.
You will need to rotate the crayfish to the next class.
*Unfortunately, we are out of stock on additional crayfish.
* If your older students want to dissect, we offer Surgical Scissors and Scalpels. You can find several great dissection videos online.
2. Do you offer an option for rotating classes?
Yes, we do! If you have more than one class rotating out of the same room, you need to purchase 1 Complete Classroom Box and 1 of the Consumable Boxes for each additional class of students.
The Consumables box removes items that can be reused by multiple classes.
Example: If you have 3 classes rotating out of 1 classroom, you will need 1 Complete Box and 2 Consumable Boxes.
*Note: The Consumable Box DOES NOT include additional crayfish.
They are for viewing only, and can be rotated from the Class Box.

5. Do you offer a student add-on option this year?
Yes, this is also a highly requested item that allows you to include consumable supplies for up to 2 students.
Simply choose the FAM/TUTOR - CONSUMABLES option from the drop down menu. You can pick one of the customized options, if you need to remove items.
6. How do I know the experiments work?
We conduct all of the experiments in house and have a team of CC Directors and Tutors that also test the supplies to ensure accuracy and success.
7. Are the worksheets and PDF's included in my packet?
Yes, we include PDF downloads for weeks 6, 9, 10, 11, 18, 20, 22, and 23.
Print as needed for your students. Please don't share outside your campus.
