As homeschoolers, we use a lot of books as part of our learning. As though who have read this blog would probably know, our boys love learning about animals. Learn about sharks with the help of the book, How to Survive as a Shark, by Kristen Foote and this printable shark fact book.

- How to Survive as a Shark
With a degree in biology behind her, Kristen Foote firmly believes that learning science can be fun. And her two books, How to Survive as a Firefly and How to Survive as a Shark do exactly that. I didn’t have to ask the boys to read this book. I left it on my desk and it kept disappearing throughout the next few days. They have read it on their own, as well as together; spending lots of time talking all about these amazing creatures.
The story, How to Survive as a Shark, is presented as a fun story, though when reading this book, kids are learning so much through the fun facts that are hidden throughout.
The facts in this book are good and bad, but they are truthful. They tell children exactly what magnificent, though sometimes terrifying creatures sharks are.
To enhance learning, I created this Great White Shark Fact Book for kids to make. There are two versions, each version is also comes in colour and black and white.
The first version is aimed at younger students with a few words on each page in dotted print for them to trace as they read.
The second version is aimed at older students. They will need to research great white sharks to find the answers. Many of them will be found in How to Survive as a Shark.
