FPMSA Fifth Graders Work as Marine Biologists in Science Class

Students in Mrs. Logue’s science classes got to be marine biologists last week in science class! Students “captured” a sea turtle and had to collect data on the turtle including its species, weight, straight carapace length and width, and curved carapace length and width.

Students also had to assess the turtle’s overall health condition and decide if the turtle was healthy enough for release or if or needed to be sent to rehab.

The students enjoyed being able to work like real scientists and learned a lot about Florida’s sea turtles! Thank you to Inwater Research Group for making this experience possible for our students!
