Product Description
ESSENTIAL QUESTION
What are the hidden costs of the products we buy to the planet, other humans, and animals?

OVERVIEW
As part of the Mysteries Uncovered theme, we are exploring the mystery of where some of our products come from. Often the people who grow and make the things we buy, the resources used for these products, and the way they impact the planet and animals are unknown to the consumer. This activity allows students to peer into the secret lives of everyday purchases to understand how they can use their own purchasing power to support their values.*

*This lesson is adapted from the Institute for Humane Education’s activities: http://www.humaneeducation.org.

OBJECTIVES
Students will be able to…
 Examine the impact a consumer good has on the environment, animals, and people.
 Identify at least one consumer choice that will be more beneficial to the environment, animals, or people than the conventional option.

This lesson is from our new 2017-18 comprehensive resource guide Justice for All: Educating Youth for Social Responsibility. Comprehensive humane education addresses human rights, animal protection, environmental ethics, and the ways in which these areas are interconnected. Imagine a world where children learn to peacefully co-exist with one another; a world where children learn to respect and honor the environment; a world where children learn to protect the myriad species with whom we share this planet. Humane education encourages students to think about their responsibility to the earth and all of its inhabitants, and provides youth with the tools to make more informed and compassionate choices. By allowing students to learn crucial information and develop solutions for many of the modern issues facing our world, humane education promises to usher in a global community that is prepared to make the planet a more peaceful and sustainable place.

Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers (HEART) and the Peace Learning Center have partnered to create this resource guide to help educate youth for social responsibility. HEART’s mission is to foster compassion and respect toward all living beings and the environment. As a full service humane education provider in New York City, Chicago, Indianapolis and Portland Oregon, HEART conducts student programs (in-school, after-school and in summer camps), offers professional development workshops for teachers both nationally and internationally, develops educational resources, and advocates for humane education. The Peace Learning Center educates, inspires and empowers people to live peacefully. It has served more than 200,000 people since its inception in 1997. Growing worldwide, Peace Learning Center now has programs in eight USA cities and five countries.
