We all really enjoyed all of the Aquatic Animals Themed Activities – creating animals with Lego blocks and wooden shapes, fishing magnetic letters, making apple turtles and feeding sharks! The Feed the Shark Math Center is great for developing your little learners’ counting to 20 and fine motor skills.
Feed the Shark Math Center
What you need:
- Plastic counters
- A box or container
- Shark picture printed and laminated
- Counting cards printed out, laminated and cut
How to complete the activity:
Laminate, cut out and paste the shark face onto an old shoe box. Cut a hole into the box for the shark’s mouth. Laminate the 20 ‘feed the shark’ cards.
Hold the cards out to the children and let them each choose a card. They look at the number on their card and ‘feed’ the shark the same amount of plastic counters. When everyone has had a turn, shuffle the cards and hand them out. Whoever has the card with number 1 on it, puts it down first. Then whoever has the card with number 2 on it, puts it on top of number 1. Continue until card number 20.
