Saving Sharks with Sophi – Blog 34 – Teaching Others

Blog 34 – “Teaching Others”

I talked to a kindergarten class about sharks. It was Ms. Bell’s class – she was my teacher when I was younger.  I showed some of my shark pictures and explained the different kinds of sharks. I talked about all of the ways that I am helping sharks and the ocean. Ms. Bell helped me explain some of the harder words for them, like research and satellite tags. The kids didn’t know that much about sharks, so I taught them a lot.

After I taught them all about sharks, I gave them wristbands to remind them about taking care of the oceans and sharks. They were really excited to have me come and talk.

Blog 33 – “Ocean Hero 2011”

I won the award for Oceana Youth Ocean Hero. A bunch of people voted for me because of the good work that I have been doing with sharks. When I won, my mom came with the KARE 11 news to my class to surprise me. I was SUPER surprised when she showed up. She brought a hammerhead cake for my class to celebrate with me. All of my friends and my teachers were cheering for me.

Then, I did an interview. My mom brought some of my shark things for me to show. My friends were really excited that they get to be famous on the news with me and the cupcakes were really good!  I am proud of my award.

Blog 31 – “Shark Month”

My church had “Shark Month” in January to help me raise more donations.  I gave a speech to all the Sunday School and they had a big board of pictures up.  All the kids “noisy offering” is going to help sharks.  It’s “noisy offering” because we all drop our coins in a big pot.  We have been singing a shark song before Sunday School too.

It was so awesome for them to help me out.  We raised $116.32 in change!
