SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!!
Hello and welcome back to class everyone!! We are so excited to be back to class here at the University of E & E! We had a lovely break, but I am ready to get back to learning our science words! Today’s word is related to National Bird Day, which we celebrated yesterday! Starting next week- I’ll be introducing our Professor of Travel and he’ll be letting you know where Ellie and Edmond are traveling for the week!
Today’s word is Ornithology: the study of birds. An ornithologist is a scientist who studies birds.
Did you know that there are nearly 10,000 species of birds on the planet? That makes for a lot of subjects for scientists to study! We love our feathery friends. Being an ornithologist is hard work! If you were going to study birds, which ones would you study? I know Ellie and Edmond would head straight to the Galapagos to study the Blue Footed Booby!
Cute booby! I would study the goose in my toybox. He must be a special and unusual species – one wing and strings coming out of his belly…. Hmmmm…
Love and licks,
