Shark STEAM Activities
STEAM activities encourage children to investigate, ask questions and become problem solvers. These are life skills that are necessary to be prepared for the “real” world. Many of these activities use things you already have around the house or can get at Dollar Tree for very little money. Here are some STEAM sites I found that have Shark Week STEAM challenges.
Even though this site is called Preschool STEAM, I think the “How Many Marbles Can You Save from the Shark” challenge would be engaging and enjoyable for any age. The challenge is to build a boat out of aluminum foil and see how many marbles your boat can hold. There are clear directions and pictures of each step in the activity.

More STEAM fun!
The Fun-A-Day website is full of resources for Shark Week STEAM activities such as “Feed the Shark Play Dough Geometry” and “Shark Water Bead Sensory Bin”. You can also find out how to make shark jaws with a paper plate and shark bodies with footprints. Your little learners will love these STEAM challenges as they develop essential life skills.

This STEAMsational website is indeed sensational! There are many activities and challenges to keep your child engaged and learning all week long. The Shark Sensory Bottle sounds like a little kid activity, but I bet the older children would enjoy it as well. Some other interesting challenges are the Shark Desalinization Experiment, the Pool Noodle Shark and of course, Lego Sharks. Click here to view the site.
I know you and your children will love these Shark Week STEAM challenges. Enjoy, and don’t forget to click on the Book Nook link on this site to read about a perfect book for Shark Week.
