ST. JUDE STUDENTS PERFORM SHARK DISSECTION

ST. JUDE STUDENTS PERFORM SHARK DISSECTION-Seventh grade students at St. Jude School worked on improving their dissecting techniques by dissecting a shark as part of their life science curriculum in their unit on vertebrates in invertebrates. The students learned about the sexual reproduction of fish and the development of the fish embryo. Seven embryos were found during the dissection so the students were able to observe stages of development. The respiratory system was also examined.. The students completed lab reports on their findings. The specimens are provided for the students through funds from the Parent Teacher Guild.
