Scientific Words I Learned at SeaWorld

I love going to SeaWorld because I get to learn about animals. Everyone I see working there stops to talk to kids like me about their jobs.

Sometimes I get to learn really neat scientific words that I have never heard before. This year I learned so many different things about animals and have shared them all with my friends in first grade. Some of the new neat words I learned are hydrodynamic, cartilage and husbandry. Lots of other science words I already learned at school but get to hear them used at SeaWorld.
