Making Positive Choices
Students learn how to look at a situation about people and animals and determine if the situation will affect them positively or negatively.
Students will learn what it means to be kind to others and will draw pictures of how they’ve been kind. These pictures will be made into a book for the classroom library.
I Can Make a Difference!
Students will be given a “situation card” that shows animals or people that need help and they’ll write a story about what they could do to help solve the problem.

How Humane Are We?
Students will learn about the Humane Movement by researching an event they feel has been a significant part of this movement.
