One of my all time favourite sets of cards, the Amazing Sharks fact cards. Proving themselves a real favourite with you guys as well.
The shark fact cards follow the same theory as my other card sets. Each card features my original illustration and common name on a coloured background that represents where in the world you can find them. The sharks have a different colour system to the other cards, as this time I've focused on the various bodies of water around the world rather than continents. When you turn the card over you find the animals scientific name, what they eat, their conservation status, how they reproduce, and 3 fun facts.
You can use the cards as flash cards initially, simply using them to learn the names of 35 different shark species, then you can move on to learning the information about them and the facts, testing each other as you know more, and progressing into a fun and educational game. Younger ones will love to sort the cards into colours finding out which sharks live in the same areas, or you could sort them by the kind of food they eat, or how about sorting them into the way their babies are born. There are so many great ways to play and learn.

I wanted to create this set of cards to bring some much needed love to the sharks that swim in our oceans. They are a very misunderstood group of animals that get some very bad press (Jaws, I'm looking at you). Sharks are truly amazing creatures that are needed to keep our oceans healthy and protect our ecosystem. So, its about time we all learnt a bit more about them and realised how much love they really deserve.
