Sharks are loads of fun to learn with. And I love the shark fins as you see them in the water. So that it’s what makes this activity fun is that you have the fun ocean theme of sharks with the puzzle

Things to use to prepare and use with the Shark Shape Puzzles
Ways to use the Shark Shape Matching Puzzles
There are many ways to match the puzzles but one of my favorites is to give them a mix of shapes laid out for them to match. They can match either side, but it is fun to see the puzzles when they are all done.
One way I love to store these is to put them on rings. It makes it easy to keep all the puzzles together and not have loads of extra papers flying around. You can see how I put all the puzzles on rings.
Now if you do the ring idea for storage, it always works for matching! You can flip through the cards and match the shapes without any extra set up than giving them the cards!
If you have done the puzzles and want something else to go with it. Then check out the Shark Shape Find! It is an easy way to add more shape fun with sharks. You can see the shape to trace and then find. We had these cute mini shark erasers to do the find with.
