What do you know about sharks?
Target Group: Middle School
Ocean Literacy Principle: 5
Students answer the True or False questions and find out if they are prejudiced towards sharks or already very knowledgeable.
You can find the activity on page 14 of the Educator's Guide. The Guide has a lot of easy to read information about for instance shark shape, senses, teeth, and reproduction. Although the Educator's Guide is made for an Imax film about sharks, any shark footage will do as background information.
