To Ms. Eisen
I hope you had a very good time here. I had a great time learning about how the sun can really damage your skin. I also learned that I have fair skin. Also I learned we have an ozone layer.

Dear Ms. Eisen,
Thank you for coming to our class and teaching us about what the sun can do to us. I never knew how much damange one little sunburn can do to our body. When I got my picture taken, there were freckles all over the bridge of my nose and under my eyes. This summer I'm going to put extra sunscreen on. I never have and never will go to a tanning salon after I heard what it could do to my body! Thank you so much!!!

Dear Ms. Eisen
I learned a lot from your speach. I did not even know there was a sin cancer called melanoma. I also never knew it grew in moles. I also thought freckles you were born with not from staying in the sun to long. I never use nearly close to 1/2 ounce of usn screen. Now I know to use more. I am also never going to a tanning parlor ever. I will now be on the alert for any changing moles. I will inform my family and friends.

Dear Ms. Eisen,
Thank you so much for teaching our class about sun saftey. I found that melanomacan start out as a simple mole very intresting. I also didnt know that people with blue eyes are more proned in getting sunburns. From now on I won't give my mom a hard time about putting on sunscreen

Dear Ms. Eisen & Mr. Gilman,
Thank you for all of the stuff you brought us! Now I know how to keep my skin safe. I know what to wear. Also, I now know what type of sunglasses and sunscreen to wear. Now I will tell my family about your visit, and my family and friends will not get burned by the sun. Your information really helped. Also, that you for all the things that you brought us! You gave us the Frisbee, you also gave us that clipboard that we can display that tells us about the temperature and the UV. Two other things were the monitor and the website. I will show all of these to my family.

Dear Ms. Eisen & Mr. Gilman,
Thank you so much for coming to our school to talk to us. I learned so much! Like, you need to wear 1 ounce of sunscreen and reapply every two hours. It was very interesting and cool to see our pictures with the freckles. The Frisbee was very cool to see it change colors in the sunlight. Thanks again.

Dear Ms. Eisen & Mr. Gilman,
Thank you fro coming in and talking to us about the dangers of the sun. I really enjoyed seeing the pictures from your special camera that showed our freckles. It was interesting to learn how different skin types are affected by the sun. It was interesting to learn about the science of the weather, and what UV was. Overall it was very interesting!
