SHARKS!

Unknown

Did you know the movie, “Jaws” was released in theaters almost forty years ago!  In honor of the great film, here is a great photo and short article about the interesting creature.   

STAKING OUT  THE GREAT WHITE SHARK

After reading the article, here are some activities you can try:

1.  Describe the picture.  What is happening?  What verb would you use to describe what the shark is doing?   

2. The article discusses the need to “repair the animal’s reputation”.  What does the author mean by this statement?

3.  Muller says that waiting for a shark to appear is an “intense experience”.  What do you think he means?

4. Muller has a book ‘coming out’ in 2015.  What does this mean?
