Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a charge for the program?
No. As long as the teachers and the students are willing to complete our Kids Making a Difference Now conservation activity, a copy of which is included in the registration packet, there is no fee for the KWT program. Schools may choose to opt out of the activity and receive the program at $5 per participant.
How much time do you need for the program?
The program takes a minimum of two hours, one hour for the storytelling and another hour for the breakout session. Usually all participants attend one storytelling session and then the breakout sessions take place on a classroom level for the remainder of the day.
What does a typical Killer Whale Tales day look like at a school?
Let’s say your school has three classes interested in Killer Whale Tales, with a total of 100 students. All 100 students will attend the 50-60 minute storytelling/lecture at the same time. After the presentation Killer Whale Tales instructors will lead the students through the hands-on exercises, for up to 2 hours, depending on the activities you choose. Hands-on activities can be added or deleted to fit your scheduling requirements. A conservation wrap-up and take-home challenge follows.
