SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!
We’re back to Science Word class after skipping last week to celebrates some animal holidays! I’m excited for today’s lesson, so let’s get started.
Today’s word is Raptor: a raptor is a bird of prey that is a carnivore. The word raptor comes from a Latin word that means to capture or seize.
Raptors include hawks, owls, falcons, osprey, eagles, vultures and secretary birds. There are 446 species of raptors in the world. Raptors have sharp claws or talons, curved sharp beaks and keen eyesight to help them catch their prey.
So as you may have guessed, Ellie and Edmond will be meeting some raptors this week!
