shark weekShark Week 2016
It's that time of year, again! Discovery's Shark Week is a huge hook for students, so be sure to take advantage of all that cold-blooded charisma! (Or, in the case of the Laminids, warm-bodied charisma.) Find schedules, lesson plans, shark cams, and more on the official website.

After being introduced to the marine sanctuaries as a class, students will work in small groups to develop posters that highlight key ideas in the benchmarks in the context of the individual marine sanctuaries.
