Check out our 100% free common core aligned lessons that teach students to be caring and compassionate toward people, animals, and our planet. HEART's ready to print lesson plans and activities teach ELA, literacy and math skills from Kindergarten to middle school to high school.

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.
