PROJECT SHARK AWARENESS
Classroom Presentations

The first Project Shark Awareness Teachers Training Workshop was held at the Florida Museum of Natural History on November 18, 2003. This workshop was attended by three participants, Kelly Stanek, Christian Canache, and Todd Kerensky, residents of south Florida. These participants scheduled and presented the information they learned about sharks in south Florida classrooms. The following include photographs of these classroom presentations.

The evaluation from the classroom teacher resulted in top scores and comments including:

"Excellent Info, well-rounded, and nicely broken up into segments.
All of the presenters were excellent!"



The students comments included:

"It was good that you kept us involved. We got to feel and touch stuff."

"Thank you. I learned a lot. Thank you!"

"I liked the lesson because it could help us in real life."

"They are very nice and care about sharks a lot!"

"I liked the sharks. I didn't like the way people fish for shark fins."

"Thank you. I thought I liked sharks before...now I love them! Don't change anything."
