SAVE THE WHALES INC
March 12, 2011

I am a 6th grade teacher at Natividad School in Salinas, CA. We invited Save the Whales (Tom) to come and give a watershed demonstration to students in order to prepare them for an upcoming field trip. Throughout the course of the hands on demonstration students were fully engaged. The next day I took students on a tour of the school in which they would identify potential hazards. Students sketched pictures about what they saw. I know that Tom's presentation was truly effective based on the fact that students could readily identify potential pollution sources, the effects of those sources, and potential solutions to the problem.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the classroom setting.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

recommend that they continue supporting elementary schools.

MY ROLE:
Client Served & I helped students gain a better understanding of how they can help their local watershed.
