Review for SAVE THE WHALES INC, Seaside, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My 3rd grade students have always enjoyed Tom's hands on presentations. The presentations I've participated in engage kids on all levels. The visual media, auditory component, movement activity, and the hands on objects he brings are fun. Kids even get to dress up as a sea creature. After the activities the kids generate very detailed meaningful writing. What more can you ask for?

Review for SAVE THE WHALES INC, Seaside, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Save The Whales provided wonderful, hands on classroom presentations for the 3rd graders at my school in Salinas, CA. Those presentations were useful in making connections to, not only science standards and social studies standards, but to math and language education as well. Many of my students live in low income neighborhoods and do not get out much due to crime in the area. Save the Whales brought the ocean and its wildlife to them, which helped enhance student's learning and understanding of articles we had read in class. Best of all the writing in my classroom was meaningful and wonderfully detailed.
