Shark Unit 2 with Free Printables

My kiddos love sharks.  And just when I think they're moving on, the countdown to Discovery Channel's Shark Week begins and the craze starts all over again.

This summer, the craze has been bigger and longer than ever, continuing through the beginning of Fall.  We couldn't resist creating our Shark Unit 2 with Free Printables.  

The kiddos have loved each and every activity and are still begging for more. We hope your kiddos enjoy them just as much!

Shark activities and free printables

Are All Sharks Dangerous?


Are All Shark Dangerous? Activity for Kids with FREE Printable

Dinomite and Bulldozer have a deep love and respect for sharks.  They have spent years learning about them.  

When they are made aware of others speaking negatively or harming sharks, they become quite upset. This activity has been created in their behalf to educate others about sharks, because not all are alike.

Orchestra Instruments in the Jaws Theme


Orchestra Instruments in the Jaws Theme Activity for Kids

The boys are so into music right now.  Not pop music or anything like that, but classical music, more specifically film scores.  I thought it would be fun to use their new found passion to my advantage. 


 As the kiddos watch and listen to the Jaws theme conducted by John Williams (their favorite composer right now), they will identify instruments they see.  The orchestra instruments cards are provided as a control.

Fun with Magnets


Magnet Kit

Sharks are very sensitive to magnetic fields. They detect them in the water, helping them hunt for prey and avoid things that may be dangerous.  

The boys thoroughly enjoyed learning more about this during Shark Week.  In honor of all that they learned, we decided to add a magnet kit to our shelves. 

Shark Sensory Bin


Shark Sensory Bin

The kiddos are always up for a fun sensory bin, especially if it includes water and sharks.  This one is quite simple including decorative rocks, blue glass beads, shark figures, random plants we have on hand, and water. They are loving it!
