Animals A to Z Activity: Shark
Education World's Animals A to Z printable activity pages are designed for weekly use with students in grade 2-4. Students learn interesting facts about animals they know (and some animals they don't know) as they reinforce basic skills of capitalization, punctuation, spelling, and grammar.

These work sheets are also excellent test-preparation tools. The skills emphasized in the series are those found on all standardized tests in grades 2 and 3: simple word usage, end-of-sentence punctuation, comma placement in a series, basic spelling, and others. The skills do not include the appropriate use of apostrophes (except in contractions) and more advanced skills. If you want editing activities that include those skills, be sure to see our daily Every-Day Edit series.
For more information about this series, or for ideas for using it, be sure to see the Ideas for Using Animals A to Z page.
Note: At first, these activities might be challenging for your students. That's not a bad thing! Encourage them to keep at it. Go over the activities as a class. If students stick to it, they will get better at finding all ten errors on each work sheet. They'll be developing the skills that they will encounter on standardized tests too!
