Did you know that different kinds of sharks have different types of teeth, based on what sort of prey they eat? And that sharks will take a “test bite” of their prey, then swim away if they don’t like it? And that sharks don’t actually have bones, just cartilage?
I didn’t know any of that stuff! Now I do! Because my daughter is sitting next to me, in my office, recording videos of herself reciting facts she’s researched about sharks.
Learning is awesome. Putting yourself in the path of other people’s learning has tremendous benefits; I got all those facts about sharks even though I wasn’t researching sharks at all, just because I was adjacent to someone who was learning.
There are things all around us stressing us out and weighing on our way of life. There are reasons to be scared and anxious. But in the midst of all that, there are still cool facts about Sharks to learn. Don’t give up on that.
