Its finally time to introduce you to my Amazing Sharks. I have been putting this set together over the last 6 months and I am so excited to finally have the finished set to show you all.
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 Ive focused on the various bodies of water around the world rather than continents) when you trun the card over you find the animals sceintific 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 speices, 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. Theres 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 Im looking at you). Sharks are truly amazing creatures that we need to keep our oceans healthy, so its about time we all learnt a bit more about them and realised how much love they really deserve.
