Books, Board Games, & Resources for Shark Week
Who doesn’t love shark week? Sure it’s kinda jumped the shark the last few years (jumped the shark, shark week, get it???) but it’s still a whole lot of fun to watch. I’ve got some really great books about sharks listed below, books for the smallest bamboo shark to the mighty great white! I tossed in a bunch of other great stuff too, including board games about sharks and some great hands-on activities, virtual lab activities, 3D videos, and a whole lot more!
P.S.! You don’t need cable tv or a Discovery Channel subscription to watch Shark Week! You can watch FREE shows from years past and this year on Discovery’s website!
