Award-winning video and lesson investigations for young children on the topic of hunting by ear

Product Description

Video and lesson investigations on the topic of hunting by ear. Key concepts include:

  • Owls use their ears as well as their eyes to locate their prey.
  • Some owls have ears which are slightly different from each other.
  • This enables them to locate pre with greater precision that if the ears were identical.
  • Such owls have evolved a hearing system which suits their life-style and the environment in which they live.
  • Owls that have asymmetrical ear openings, which are s paced widely apart, are able to determine the direction of a sound because it reaches each ear at a slightly different time.
  • This allows them to pinpoint a sound by a process of triangulation.
  • This can make an owl’s ear sensitive enough to detect the slight noise a mouse makes when running over twigs and leaves on the ground.
