The Kindergartners at James H. Bean were able to participate in Chewonki’s Owls of Maine Traveling Exhibit. Three live owls are the highlights of this program which introduced our students to the owls native to Maine and New England. The presentation begins with slides and sounds of different types of owls. Students learn the identifying characteristics and calls of each owl, then, using talons, wings, and skulls, we explore the adaptations of these silent nocturnal hunters. This program ends with being able to see three live owls. We appreciate all the families at JHB that bring in Box Tops for Education because this is what funded the program.
