This last week, we read several kids books about ocean animals, but there’s one book we didn’t include on the list.
The DK FindOut! Shark book is a great resource for young kids who want to learn more facts about sharks.
This book goes over a ton of shark facts, including shark anatomy, the shark life cycle, specific shark species, hunting, migration and more!
We read the sections the kids were most interested in, then talked about all the fun facts we learned.
Anatomy Of A Shark Worksheet
After we read the shark book, we printed out the shark worksheets.
First, we colored in the shark, then we cut out the shark labels and used glue sticks to attach them to the correct box.
My 3-year-old was too young to remember what each part of the shark was by himself, but my 7-year-old enjoyed doing it independently.
Shark Conservation Worksheet
The second and third pages of these worksheets discuss the importance of shark conservation.
For these pages, we read over them together then discussed our thoughts about each question.
All in all, it was a fun educational activity that I hope inspires my kids to look at sharks in awe and not in fear!
