Hi, yes the section element is between the body. Looks like this:

<section> <h1>Title goes here</h1> <p>Some text goes here</p> </section>

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset='utf-8'>

Section element is used for separating important parts of your page. Imagine you have a single page website and you want to separate main content, about, and contact sections a section tag could be used. It also helps with keeping your html easier to read and more semantic.
