The public can play a big role in making changes to improve the quality of life for domestic, farm, and wild animals. This presentation for the lessons, introduces the BC SPCA’s role in improving animal welfare and emphasizes the importance of community involvement in this mission. Links are made to core competencies of critical thinking, communication, and social responsibility.
Through real life stories and scenario activities, students will learn about the BC SPCA’s role in preventing cruelty, the five freedoms used to ensure an animal is being properly cared for, and what the community can do to make a difference. Discussions during this workshop lend to how people should treat each other and what can be done to improve a situation.
“You Can Make a Difference” incorporates many aspects of the new BC curriculum and presents them with applicable, real-life meaning.
