SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!
Welcome everyone! Who’s ready to learn a cool new word? This word will help us get ready for World Sea Turtle Day which is tomorrow!
Today’s word is Plastron: the plastron is the bottom shell of a turtle. The plastron attaches to the top shell or carapace as it is called usually on the turtles sides. Some turtles like the box turtle have a hinge on their plastron that they can use to close completely.
