        The Shark and the Lamprey

        Jonathan shares how a seemingly trivial observation of parasitic lampreys on the backs of basking sharks led to an important discovery about the biology of the parasitic sea lamprey. He returned the next year with a shark biologist and a lamprey biologist to attempt to recover living lampreys from the backs of Basking sharks. The accompanying lesson plan guides students through a scientific investigation that encourages students to ask questions about their observations and foster scientific inquiry.
