Gifted students at Bel-Aire Elementary School are doing a unit on Marine Biology and independent research this month. On Wednesday, they enjoyed a lesson on shark dissection through a USM program called “There’s a Marine Biologist in My Classroom”. The 2nd-4th graders watched the USM instructor dissect the shark and view and touch the internal organs. The 5th-6th graders actually got to cut the shark open and dissect it under the guidance of the instructor.
