Gluing Teeth in a Shark's Mouth Craft

At Little Leaders Learning Center, they learned all about sharks, their teeth, and glued construction paper teeth into a shark's mouth! It was great fun finding out facts about sharks and then gluing the teeth.

Shark teeth facts

*Most sharks average between 5-15 rows of teeth, the aggressive Bull Shark comes in at 50

*Whale sharks have 3,000 teeth total, but they are small and for eating plankton, krill, and other microscopic foods.

*Shark can easily lose teeth (generally one a week) and also regrow them quickly

*Shark teeth grow in conveyor belt-like series and rows, with the biggest teeth facing outwards. Over time, the smaller teeth in the back grow and move up, replacing the ones in front.

Gluing the teeth

After learning all about sharks and their teeth, the students glued some into an empty shark's mouth! They made some fantastic rows of teeth. It was awesome learning about sharks, their teeth, and gluing some!
