Students in the Westhampton Beach School Districts got up close and personal with a baby great white shark during a unique lesson on Sept. 10.

During the lesson, science teacher Matthew Berkhout laid out the shark, which was recently found deceased on the shores of Fire Island, on a table for students to examine. Berkhout descriped the anatomoy of the shark, answered questions and discussed the field research he conducts with his team as part of the South Fork Natural History Museum and Nature Center’s (SOFO) Shark Research and Education Program.

The shark will soon be shipped to NOAA Fisheries’ Narragansett Laboratory in Narragansett, Rhode Island for further analysis.

Westhampton Beach students are spending their summer mornings learning and playing as part of the district’s summer recreation program, which runs through the month of July.

During the four-week program, held at Westhampton Beach Elementary School, students in grades K-8 participate in a wide variety of activities, including science, computers, crafts and sports. For the first time, students are also spending time in the school’s greenhouse. Two days a week, the students learn to plant and harvest a variety of crops. High school students volunteer to assist with the program. 

The summer program also provides an opportunity for incoming kindergartners to get acquainted with their new school and for older students and special education students to work on their academics through extended learning opportunities.
