Students will learn about owls and their adaptations for survival. They will learn about owls place in the food chain and role in the ecosystem.

This resource is designed to address the Disciplinary Core Ideas for NGSS Ecosystem: Interactions, Energy and dynamics and Molecules to Organisms: Structure and Processes.

This resource also includes both a SMART board sort and a paper version of that sort for teachers who do not have a SMART board. The sort is self-checking in both versions.

This resource includes sorting cards for making a food chain with owls and discussing the flow of energy.
