Be Kind to Animals Week invites your school to do one kind act for animals from now until 31st October 2016. The nationwide event is about inspiring and empowering students to take positive action for animals while having fun, building skills in critical thinking and ethical understanding, and learning the value of empathy, responsibility and active citizenship in our communities.
All Australian primary and secondary schools and students are invited to carry out a project and submit their entries at www.thinkkind.org/enter.
This FREE Teacher's Kit includes educational project ideas, lesson plans and worksheets to help your students celebrate Be Kind to Animals Week.
The lesson plans included are aligned to the National Curriculum for F–10 Science and English. They are specifically designed to cover this year’s Sentience theme and provide the perfect starting point for students to begin exploring the issue of animal rights and welfare.
It is recommended that students complete one of the lessons from this kit before starting their projects. This will prepare them with some of the skills and knowledge required to get the most out of their learning experience.
