SYSK Monday: Sharks….

Did you watch the beginning of Shark Week last night? Do you still have goosebumps, or should we call them sharkbumps? Well, Discovery is going to do its best to keep those sharkbumps active all week long and all our posts this week will honor that.

Josh and Chuck are at it again — this time with a snippet from history. Hear about the sinking of the USS Indianapolis and the survivors’ struggles to stay alive in shark-infested waters as they waited four days for rescue.




Can’t get enough shark info? More horrifying and heartwarming shark stories are available right in your Discovery Education account. Check out the links below.

Just for fun… watch some Kenny the Shark antics.

Just for fear… watch some shark bites up close.

Just for reality… watch some scientists assure you that shark attacks are rare!

    This weekend, my friends and I were chatting about Great Whites. He saw one breach off the back of a boat and a few minutes later jumped in the water to scuba dive. He’s much braver (probably not smarter) than me! He loves scuba diving though and has actually seen white tip sharks up close in the wild.
