All the kids I teach get excited about sharks, I think it is the mystery, the danger and the beauty of them. Some kids I teach have amazing abilities to remember shark facts (but can't remember their PE kits! Just saying). When it comes to teaching them about these fantastic animals, I like to keep the excitement going!
I start with a fun lesson on the different habits and types of sharks, usually including a video or two to keep the momentum going. Then if we have time I will run a quiz maybe or get them to take part in a shark based escape room game. Finally we create posters or mini books with all the information we have learnt, it is such a great topic!
Never miss a post!
