Keep Shark Week Going All Year Round
posted by: Alix | August 20, 2012, 07:59 PM   

Shark Week, Discovery Channel's annual celebration of the fearsome fish, ended last week, but that doesn't mean you can't keep the excitement and learning going all year round. Let's face the facts: you're always looking for a lesson plan that has Shark-Week-levels of excitement and interest. Because a new school year is right around the corner (or already in session for some of you), we invite you to check out some great resources for your classroom. Many of these would be perfect icebreaking activities to discuss summers spent at the beach! Visit the Discovery Channel's website for the best Shark Week resources. These interactive activities explore marine biology, geography, and more. Students of all ages will find something of interest. Check out these great resources about species of sharks, interaction between sharks and humans, and tools of the trade for real-life biologists.

Atlantis Marine World: This website features marine biology lesson plans and resources for older students. Perfect for high school biology!

Kidzone: This go-to website features fun activities and crafts for students interested in sharks. Factsheets, lesson plans, and "printables" are all free and easily accessible!

First School: This website offers craft ideas for younger students. These activities are a great resource to wrap up summer vacation for K-3 students.

TeachHub: This resource offers writing prompts for all grade levels about the themes of shark week. Younger students can make lists of their favorite sea-creatures while older students can write about overcoming stereotypes or how to generate more interest in science.

Teachers, have you used Shark Week themes in your lessons? Do you have a website to add?
