Tracking Great White Sharks

Today I was watching the news and there was a report on great white sharks. A scientist with Ocearch has caught and tagged several great white sharks with GPS tracking devices in order to track their movement. If you visit Ocearch’s website you can track different sharks.

I had no idea that great white sharks travelled so far! Check this out. A shark called Mary Lee travelled all the way up and own the east coast, from Cape Cod to Jacksonville. She’s even gone all the way to Bermuda! Who knew sharks could swim that far.

Check out the website and be sure to post your comments.

About the Author

Hello my name is Karen McKelvey and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Curie Elementary School in San Diego, California. I began teaching at Curie Elementary in 2002. I feel fortunate to be part of such a great community. I love blogging with my students as it provides them with an authentic audience for their work. Collaborative group work and project-based learning are key components of my classroom. I completed my Masters degree in Educational Technology from San Diego State University in 2010. Many of the concepts/pedagogy and technologies I learned about in this program, like learning management systems, Google tools, and blogs are implemented in my classroom. Technology plays a key role in the learning that occurs in our classroom. We don’t learn about technology, we learn with technology. Students are engaged in activities that incorporate writing, research skills, critical and creative thinking skills, and much more on a daily basis.

    When I am done with this comment I will be sure to check out that website. Nether did I know great whites could go that long of a way! Hopefully I won’t go to the beach when they go to San Diego!
