Pink and yellow shark saw blue shark trip orange shark. They went and told the whale shark (adult shark) that blue shark was bullying orange shark. The whale shark didn’t think that blue shark was a victim of bullying. He said it was just a conflict between the two sharks. . Whale shark helped blue and orange shark figure out their conflict. The next day, all four sharks were playing four square together. All of a sudden a bull shark comes over. He wants to play four square, but he has to wait his turn. He doesn’t want to wait his turn so he punches orange shark right out of the box. LIGHTS OUT! They all went and told whale shark. He went out to talk to bull shark.
