SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!
Welcome to class this week! We have a big word this week, so let’s get right to it!
Today’s word is Brachiation: to brachiate \ˈbrā-kē-ˌāt\ or swing using one arm at a time. Lesser apes such as gibbons brachiate through the trees. Humans are capable of this, but not like apes or monkeys! Apes and monkeys use this form of movement to get through trees quickly and efficiently.
