Animals spark a natural curiosity within children. Students will explore animal issues in the context of social justice, the ecosystem, media literacy, art and math by researching the cost of pets, examining the impact of cats on the ecosystem, and taking on advocacy projects for animals. Teachers will take part in lessons that have helped students apply critical thinking to issues and develop empathy, all while gaining a better understanding of animals’ needs.

Target Audience: Grade 4-7
