From my current perch, waiting out the pandemic in Southwestern Vermont, time and place dictate that I post this context clues worksheet on the noun raptor. I can’t remember why I wrote this, but I have to assume it was the Word of the Day at Merriam-Webster.
It means “bird of prey.” Students might connect it with that feared creature of the Jurassic Park movie franchise, the velociraptor. Also, now you know what you’ll see if you visit the Raptor Center at the Vermont Institute of Natural Science over in Quechee.
