Product Description
You may have heard people use the phrase, "It's all Greek to me." In the case of scientific names, that's often true! Scientists use Greek and Latin terms to create scientific names for different living things. The scientific name may provide information about the appearance, behavior or habitat where an animal lives. It may include the name of the person who discovered the organism or someone the "discoverer" wanted to honor.

Define the suffix and prefix of various shark's scientific name, and then match the shark's name with it's picture. Very Fun!
