SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!

SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!

swow poisonous

Welcome back to class everyone! Who’s excited to learn a new word? Ellie and Edmond have told me that they will announce the art contest winners this week! I know I am excited about that! Now let’s get on with the word of the week!

Poisonous/Poison: a toxic substance that is administered through touch or being ingested.  Animals that are poisonous use it as a defense mechanism. Animals that poisonous include poison dart frogs and puffer fish. Some poison dart frogs can kill their predators, including humans with one single touch of their skin. Puffer fish tissue is full of toxins that will kill predators.

  1. I love poison. Mom always says if there’s anything poisonous on the ground in a 10 mile radius of our house, I will find it. Yay! I hope so….. I would not eat a pufferfish, though. Too cute!

    Love and licks,
