Sharks play a critical role in the delicate balance of ocean ecosystems. Yet despite their importance, shark populations are being decimated globally. The rapid decline in populations teamed with the man-eating monster stereotypes sharks have garnered over the years, have left sharks fighting for their survival.
The goal of Sharks4Kids is to create a new generation of shark advocates through access to a dynamic range of educational materials. Curriculum, videos and activities will allow teachers to integrate shark education into their science programs on an introductory, intermediate or advanced level. Students can access coloring pages, activities and info sheets to satisfy their own curiosity about sharks. Photos and videos from scientists and conservationists bring an exciting element into the classroom and show students the beauty of the ocean.
Sharks4Kids also funds first field trips and science education days for students in South Florida and The Bahamas. Our team also provides a diverse range of shark lessons to classroom and groups around the world ( in person and virtually).
We bring together scientists, educators, conservationists and professional videographers to create a unique opportunity for the next generation to learn why sharks need kids and kids need sharks.
