Children often express fascination with sharks and find them to be one of the most amazing creatures of the ocean. These marine animals have adapted to life in the water in their unique way. The shark life cycle is particularly peculiar and learning about all the different ways sharks procreate inspires children to dive deeper to explore these mysterious creatures. 

Children will learn stages of the ovoviviparous shark life cycle, and parts of the shark, practice sequencing skills, and work to improve their concentration and fine motor skills.
