Each year, the Scripps National Spelling Bee publishes its School Spelling Bee Study List, a list of 450 words to help students prepare for a school-level spelling bee. These 450 words come from a list of books carefully selected by the Bee’s editorial team for their engaging and age-appropriate content, as well as their rich vocabulary. That list of books is called the Great Words, Great Works list.

Scripps National Spelling Bee typically chooses five books per grade level, including at least one nonfiction and one classic per grade level. The Race to Save the Lord God Bird was selected as a nonfiction book at the 8th grade level.

The following words appear on the 2018 8th grade School Spelling Bee Study List and were pulled from The Race to Save the Lord God Bird:

 

Cypress
Expeditionaries
Formaldehyde
Oologist
Pestiferous
Appendectomy
Boroughs
