Activity Fridays – Shark Dissection

On Friday August 1, 2014 students from grades 4-6 participated in a fun, exciting, and educational science activity. SHARK DISSECTION! Students were given the opportunity to dissect a dogshark.  Dogsharks are the most abundant sharks in the ocean. Students learned about the anatomy and were able to recognize the different organs in the shark’s body. The activity was hands on and engaging. Perhaps one day, some of these students will be surgeons in the future!
