Communication and Empathy
Students will analyze how dogs communicate. Students will develop the social skill of empathy by learning how to identify nonverbal cues of dogs and how to appreciate an animal’s perspective.

Companion Animal Advocates
Using role-play and engaging in pair and group discussions, students will learn that although all animals have similar general needs, companion animals need specific things in order to be happy and healthy.

Help Me Find a Home
Students learn that not all companion animals have homes, but that animal adoption centers and rescue organizations take care of homeless animals and work hard to find animals their forever homes.

Moo, Oink, Cluck
Students develop respect for farm animals by learning fun and interesting facts about them.

Urban Wildlife
Students will think about the wild animals who live in their own neighborhoods and consider some of the dangers that those animals experience every day. They will brainstorm ways to create safer habitats for urban wildlife.


Circle of Caring
Each student will share something s/he has done to help someone else or to protect nature and the students will create a symbolic circle of caring to show how we are all connected by our care for others.

Make A Puppy Face
Using various materials, students will create puppy masks and draw puppies’ needs on the back of the masks.

Happy Pet Environments
Students will create dioramas of indoor or outdoor scenes with companion animals and provide all the necessary items that need to be included for the animals to be safe and happy.

Catnip Toy and Dog Kong
ASPCA and HEART 4 Students create cat toys and dog treats to either keep for their own animals (or animals they know) or donate to a local animal adoption center.

Nonfiction Stories
Students will examine the interactions human beings have with wild animals and the consequences of such interactions. Through a nonfiction passage, students will learn about sanctuaries and the life of a tiger who was saved from a roadside zoo.
