Science Word of the Week!
Welcome students! We’ll be holding class on Mondays from now on! Can you think of a better way to start your week? I know I can’t! Let’s get on with this week’s word!
Nocturnal: being active at night. Animals that are nocturnal are primarily active during the evening and night and sleep during the day. Animals have many reasons to be nocturnal; it helps protect them from predators, their prey may be nocturnal too and it helps them avoid the heat of the day.
Another reason for being nocturnal is because you want to tweet your pals in different time zones. 😉 Or is that just me (probably). Morning now…I should go to bed.
