Virtual Sea Camps sharks and rays lab is an exciting course. Alongside our marine field scientists you get up close and personal with several species of sharks and rays, ranging from the small 3 foot horn sharks to the giant 30 foot whale sharks. They learn about the three different classes of fish with emphasis on cartilaginous fish from the class Chondrichthyes. Students gain a basic understanding of how to identify these fish by looking at specific distinguishing features.
Through virtual underwater snorkel and scuba experiences students learn how to observe various sharks and rays and develop a hypothesis. As they proceed through the steps of the scientific method using their findings they will develop a theory and conclusion (see full description and curriculum standards).
