Marine Biology

Students will get to dissect their own squid, hold a starfish, see what is inside a clam shell and feel what it's like to stick their hand in a jellyfish!! These are just a few of the cool things we will explore in Marine Biology. We will begin with the "perfect" predator - sharks! Their ability to hunt has earned them a top seat on the marine food chain. Why are they so good at what they do? We will discover how many senses a shark has and how they use them to catch their prey. Students will perform experiments to see how their own senses match up to sharks! We will hold a real shark and learn how it's anatomy assists in their hunting ability. We will analyze why surfers are mistaken for seals and have a surfboard design competition. Of course we will see, hold and touch several marine animals during our marine exploration. Dive into class to learn more!
