Shark Week Freebie

It's Shark Week, Friends! 

I am so excited to be a part of this fun freebie link up where there are tons of freebies related to sharks.  So exciting!  I LOVE Shark Week and my students do, too. What better way to spark interest than sharks?!?!

Today, a team of bloggers has come together to help your students take a BITE out of learning with this fun shark theme.  So, let's dive on in and get started! 


First, let's talk about student engagement. There are so many fun ways to engage your students as you teach.  I LOVE to bring learning to life.  For example to learn about matter this past year, we put Mentos in Coke, melted crayons, and made root beer floats. I can guarantee that this upcoming group of 3rd graders know all about matter. Below is a picture of one of my students enjoying a root beer float. 

It also helps to pick topics that your students are interested in as well. Hence this fun shark theme! 

My students LOVE to Roll and Graph.  I love to have themed roll and graphs in my classroom for early finisher activities and to reinforce graphing concepts. 

For Shark Week,  I created a Roll and Graph Freebie for y'all.

All you need is scissors, glue/tape, and a tissue box.  Print out the cards and glue/tape them onto the sides of a tissue box. Then, your students are ready to roll and graph.  As students roll and graph, they will be learning the names of the most popular sharks.  This would be great to tie in with some shark research!

Be sure to go for a swim in the JAWSOME linky party below. Every blog in the Shark Week Blog Hop features a fishy freebie for you and your students- but hurry! Shark Week only lasts until Sunday, August 17th  : )
