In celebration of our Oceanography unit, I wanted to mention that starting Sunday night on the Discovery Channel is – SHARK WEEK!

 

 

This is a great opportunity for all the STEAM members to learn more about some of the most interesting and powerful creatures of the sea.

 

Here’s a link to the Discovery Channel for videos and more information:

Additionally, here are a few bonus activities this month that you can do at home.  They are not at the library but are fun ideas with supplies you probably have at home.
