1. Main character Dolphins and sharks2. Write the summary of the book.In the ocean, larger and stronger animals eat smaller and weaker ones. Scientists call their process the food chain. Dolphins and sharks are predators. Because they are larger and stronger than most sea animals, they are at the top of the food chain.Most scientists think 50 million years ago, dolphins had hands and legs and lived on land. Over millions of years, dolphins adapted to life in the water. They developed ways of breathe in the water to find food and communicate. Today there are about 33 different kinds, or species, of dolphins. These different species have many things in common.Although dolphins and sharks share the same ocean home, they are very different. There are more than 350 different species of sharks. Sharks are cold-blooded. Sharks are not mammals. They are a special kind of fish. Some sharks lay eggs; others give birth to live young.Scientists used to think that most sharks needed to keep moving through the water to get enough oxygen to breathe. But more than 30 years ago, a discovery changed their mind.3. Write your feelings about the book in details. Fresh water has more oxygen in it than salt water. They think that the extra oxygen helped the sharks breathe without swimming and perhaps made them calm(See p 71).Doesn't they have to swim if there are enough oxygen in the water?4. Write the words, phrases or sentences that impressed you most in the book and explain why they impressed you. Or you could write your questions about the book.When same sharks zero in for an attack, they close their eyes or roll them back to protect themselves from being hit the eyes by bones or sharp objects.It's amazing to be closed their eyes when they hunt!
