Product Description

Do you think all sharks are scary? Well, they aren’t! Sharks come in a wide range of shapes and sizes (over 300 different kinds) and eat different kinds of food from oysters to tiny plankton. In The Scoop on Sharks from Be Naturally Curious you’ll learn about shark diversity, and get a sense of their body sizes and habitats. You’ll also learn about the special anatomy of sharks and how the jaws of different sharks match the kind of food they eat. Ready to become a museum expert on sharks and build your own stuffed shark? Dive right in!

Mini-course is provided as a 29-page PDF including a Science Tool Kit page to use to collect your badges.
