Pair this with the free Shark Printable Coloring Pages for more learning fun!

What is in the Sharks Unit Study, besides Shark Facts?

Your children will be absorbing so much during Shark Week, especially if you will be watching all the themed programming on the Discovery Channel.

While sharks tend to get a bad reputation for biting and being vicious, they’re one of the most misunderstood sea creatures in the world.

It’s not too often that they’ll attack unprovoked, but people still have this image of them being so vicious because of movies made in the past, such as Jaws and Deep Blue Sea.

If you want your children to learn all about sharks, use this printable Shark Unit Study to introduce them to some interesting shark facts.

Learning More About Types of Sharks

Not all sharks are the same.

While it’s something you already know, your children might not have realized that.

When using this Shark Week Printable, you’ll get to teach them about some of the different sharks in the oceans, including Hammerheads and Great Whites.

Shark Week Printable

Take the opportunity to discuss with your child the different behaviors these sharks tend to display.

You can even go over the details of what they’ll normally eat while swimming in the ocean.

Add this interactive facts and activity workbook to the week and step up the learning fun to the next level.


The Sharks Unit Study includes:

  1. A ‘Label a Shark’ activity
  2. Word Search
  3. Flashcards
  4. Shark Facts and more.

Pull up the file, from your computer, and print all pages but the play dough and flashcards sheets on regular white multi-purpose paper.

I highly recommend printing the play dough activity,
