Folks, my children have been obsessed with sharks for years. We’ve read favorite shark books, watched documentaries, and played games with a shark theme. Did you know we even tracked a Great White shark named Lydia for nearly two years with Ocearch Shark Tracker? She was over 16 feet long and traversed all around the Atlantic ocean! Discovery Channels Shark Week is an exciting time for us. It’s the perfect time to do a week-long study on the science of sharks!

Shark Week Teatime Fun

Art is a fabulous addition to your shark science lessons! All you need is a pack of construction paper, chalk pastels, and Nana’s shark art videos to add a bit of artistic fun to your shark week studies. Nana is fantastic at taking you step-by-step in drawing these fierce and sometimes adorable apex predators!

To make your shark week even more memorable, make it a chalk pastel teatime! We added our favorite pot of tea, strawberry shortcake with whipped cream, and iced cakes for our shark week teatime!

That strawberry shortcake was so delicious. I don’t think it lasted 10 minutes! Luckily there was plenty of tea and iced cakes to keep us going.

We love tumbling down rabbit holes of learning, and each of these sharks provided just that! So we looked up facts on habitats, food preferences, and danger levels to humans from our shark encyclopedias. Our favorite sharks included the nurse shark, hammerhead, black-tip reef shark, and zebra shark. My daughter adored the cuteness of the catshark so named for its cat-shaped eyes and gentle demeanor.

There is so much to love about sharks! These fantastic fish are genuinely remarkable and are so crucial to the health of our oceans. With Nana’s lessons, there is a shark for everyone, be it the docile whale shark, the famous great white, or everything in between! Just remember to keep loads of blue, green, and gray chalk pastels on hand! With all of the blue ocean water we’ve created this week, along with the awesome sharks, our blue and gray pastels are nothing more than nubs! But we don’t mind!
