Justice for All Guide

Announcing our brand new 2017 resource guide! HEART and the Peace Learning Center have partnered to create this humane education guide to help educate youth for social responsibility. Humane education addresses human rights, animal protection, environmental ethics, and the ways in which these areas are interconnected. 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.

This guide contains lessons for students in grades K-5 (the middle school curriculum coming soon). All lessons are aligned to Common Core Standards as well as ISTE technology integration standards. View the Table of Contents.

Animal-Focused Humane Education Resource Guide

animal lesson plans

We all know that children love animals, and that teaching kids about animal-related issues can be a great way to develop more caring and compassionate students. That’s why HEART, in collaboration with the ASPCA and IFAW, created this resource guide filled with 40 lessons and activities on issues like companion animal overpopulation, urban wildlife, endangered species, animal emotions, factory farming and animal testing. Youth learn about the topics, and find out how they can take action to make the world a better place for all life on earth.

This guide contains lessons for students in grades K – 12 (each lesson is aligned to the Common Core Standards) and activities that can be conducted both in school settings as well as more nontraditional out-of-school venues like community centers, libraries or camps. View the Table of Contents.
