SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!

SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!

swow

 

Hello students! I am so excited to see you this week! I hear Ellie and Edmond have some frighteningly good feature animals for you in the next few weeks, because we all know October is the month for tricks or treats! I know I”ll look forward to meeting these animals! This week for our science word, we’re talking about another genetic mutation that is similar to albino. Today’s science word is Leucistic: leucistic animals have a genetic mutation that causes them to lose some color- but not all, like in albino animals. Leucistic animals can have colored eyes or light stripes or color on parts of their body.

We have some examples of leucistic animals for you in these pictures!
