Holidays are happy for families yet potentially dangerous for pets. There is nothing that will ruin a wonderful vacation sooner than a sick pet. This lesson shows how to keep our pets safe during the festive Thanksgiving period and teaches children to take responsibility for the safety of their pets. It also teaches them to assess their surroundings to look for potential hazards to their pets' well being. These items would be great on the bulletin board and in a lesson on responsibility and discernment.
