My oldest son loves sharks! Anytime that we go to the aquarium he wants to hurry to the shark tank. It was one of the reasons that we did a short nature study on sea creatures last year and a big reason we are going to study them again this year. Shark week is next week so I thought it would be great to put together a list of resources that we can use to learn about sharks.
If you are looking for some educational and fun things to do next week or during your school year here are some great places to start.

It’s been a great way to keep a record of what they are learning and they really enjoy it. Here are some other ways to have fun with art while learning about sharks.
