Sharks Unit I (FREE Skip Counting Cards)

Thursday, July 25, 2013

Today I'm sharing the first part of our Shark Unit (link to the second part). I bought the Safari Ltd Sharks TOOB and we've been using them non-stop.

100 Facts on Sharks is a wonderful book for learning all about these creatures. It got lots of shark pictures and provides fun facts :)

We also used my parts of The Shark nomenclature cards and booklet (includes activity sheets). Click the picture for the link.

The Shark Learning Pack
I love how detailed the shark figures are! So it was easier for me to show the locations of the fins like the pectoral, anal, pelvic and dorsal.

Coloring materials were downloaded from Education.com and the activity sheet was from my The Shark Learning Pack.

The Shark booklet were of great help in learning how each part of the the shark functions. My son loves to compare the shark's body parts to his LOL.

A shark puzzle out of cardstock. What we did here was print a shark clipart on a blue paper and cut it in several pieces for him to assemble again. He later on added some drawings like coral reefs and fishes on the completed puzzle to make it look like the shark is in the deep blue waters.

For our Math, we've been doing Montessori Math: FREE Addition Booklets for a while and I am now introducing skip counting.  These Shark skip counting cards are available for free (for personal use only). Please click the picture for the link.

  1. What would we do without Safari Toobs? Seriously! I love them! I wish I could buy a new one each week to go with every single one of our units. Looks like a fun shark unit!

    1. They're fantastic learning material isn't it? I'm totally happy I discovered them. They're quite pricey but worth-it. I would love to get new ones as well but they're difficult to find here in UK/Ireland.
