SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!

SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!

swow kelp forest

Welcome back to class! We have a great word for you this week- it’s a habitat and a pretty fantastic one at that! Are you ready to learn our word?

Today’s word is Kelp Forest: a kelp forest is a habitat that is found in cold coastal ocean waters. Kelp forests are made up of giant kelp that attaches itself to rocky ocean floors and grows to the surface of the water. The kelp requires sun to grow. Many animals including sea otters, fish, crustaceans and urchins call the kelp forest their home!
