Urbanization and Wildlife Gr. 7-9
Themes: Conservation, Citizenship, Compassion, Respect, Global and Community Responsibility, Wildlife Hazards, Safety, Community Involvement, Web of Life and Human Ecological Impacts
What happens when humans invade wild spaces? Is there really such a thing as "nuisance" wildlife? Examine what happens when humans and wild animals collide. "Respect", "Rights" and "Responsibility" are the 3 R's of animal welfare. Using case studies and engaging activities students explore the needs of living things and learn about the importance of acting humanely towards all living creatures, both wild and domestic. Various issues will be discussed with an emphasis on co-existing with wildlife in urban areas. Alberta Learning Curriculum Connections
Bullying - Pets and People Gr. 7-9
Themes: Healthy Relationships, Empathy, Cycle of Violence, Ethics, Connection Between Animal and Human Violence, Respect, Community Action, Personal Value Judgements (Discovering, Challenging and Developing) and Abuse Awareness (Animal, Family and Relationships).
In this interactive empathy building program, students learn about the connection between bullying and animal cruelty. The discussion begins with animal welfare and transitions to human violence as students begin to relate the examples given to bullying and other societal concerns. By evaluating scenarios of abusive behavior in a group activity, students discover that views on abuse can vary substantially and that they have the power to create an atmosphere of acceptance in their school, home and community.
