It’s Discovery Channel’s 30th anniversary of Shark Week, and you don’t want to miss out on this fun shark unit study.
My daughter has a lot of shark stuff.
My youngest daughter is a tad bit obsessed with sharks.
She has shirts, stuffed sharks, play sets, a shark tooth necklace, and more.
We love visiting aquariums.
She wants to be a marine biologist, specializing in the study of sharks.
She had a shark-themed 11th birthday.
She made cupcakes with red jelly for a shark attack. She molded sharks and fins on top with fondant. The buttercream was dyed to look like ocean foam.
Katie, Tori, and a friend designed a shark-themed restaurant for an architecture class.
The design was made using all recyclable materials. They had hydroponics and an aquarium and lava tubes. Diners were underwater! The restaurant was fully sustainable and eco-friendly.
They won at the local level and went to compete at district!
