Hello students and friends! We’re excited to see everyone this week in class! Ellie and Edmond just returned from a trip to Florida where they met some baby alligators and their moms- very exciting stuff! Let’s get on with our word of the week!

Albino- an animal that has a genetic mutation that causes them to have no pigmentation or color. Albino animals are all white and usually have pink eyes. Albino animals often do not survive well in the wild, as they lack the camouflage they need to help them survive. We have some examples of albino animals here:
