SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!

swow marsupial

Welcome back to our summer session! I’m so glad to see everyone here in class! I had a lovely break and Ellie and Edmond had a nice weekend exploring the outdoors. I’m excited for this week’s word! Are you ready to learn today?

This week’s word is Marsupial: a marsupial is a mammal that gives live birth to very small young that climb into the mother’s pouch or marsupium to grow up in. The pouches are mostly on the outside of the mother’s pouch. Most marsupials live in Australia, except for several species of opossums- who live in North, Central and South America.
