Our kids love Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. (Shark Week Activities) We all find it fascinating and terrifying at the same time. In the past, I have used the kids’ Shark Week fascination to jump into a shark unit study while the kids are still excited.
Here are some resources that I have gathered to make a great shark unit study. I found facts, unit studies, printables, art projects, fun games and more. Use them to get your shark unit study started!
