Sharks are one topic kids love to learn about, and we have a list of shark activities listed below.
One of the best parts of homeschooling for me is being able to do lots of hands-on activities. I always try to find activities, experiments, crafts, and games that correlate with what we are studying. And then sometimes, we just do a fun activity just because. I have tons of ideas saved to my Pinterest boards so we never have a shortage options!
Here are 20 shark activities that you can pin to your shark themed Pinterest board and add to your list of fun stuff to do with your kids. There are shark games, shark slime recipes, shark puppets, shark crafts, shark coloring pages, and more! Enjoy!
