Toddler Blog – Sharks


11th January 2018

Overview

Today we started our adventure through the Atlantic Ocean and learnt all about sharks! We sang a song to practice our sign language, learnt the names of different shark body parts and discovered how you can look at the shape of a shark’s tooth to find out what it likes to eat! The Toddler group also went exploring around the Atlantic Ocean Tank to see the sharks being fed and to meet our newest shark: Rod the Sand Bar shark!

3 facts

  1. Sharks have been around for 400 million years, that means that they were swimming in the sea before dinosaurs walked on the land!
  2. There are around 400 species of sharks that we know of, the largest is the Whale shark which is up to 12m long and the smallest is the Dwarf Lantern shark which is the size of your hand!
  3. Sharks have skeletons which are made of bendy cartilage, humans have cartilage in the tops of their ears and the tips of their noses! Can you wiggle your ears and squish your nose and find some cartilage?
