Sharks in the classroom!

I LOVE teaching kids about sharks. There are so many important lessons to be learned, and – learning aside – shark education can be SOOOO much fun!

I have held interactive sessions on sharks with kids as young as 1, all the way up to 18 (and beyond).

Early shark education is so important for providing kids with a realistic impression of these animals. This will help to buffer all of the myths and misinformation they will later be exposed to through movies and the media. It is also a critical and crucial step towards ocean conservation. I’ve summarised my thoughts on the topic here.

If you’re interested in having me come out to your classroom, childcare centre, or group to have some fun, interactive learning on sharks, please get in touch!
