Youth think about how they can act kindly toward people, animals, and the environment by participating in a series of role-plays where someone is in need or where they can be of service.
Youth gather information about the life cycle of a product, analyze the true cost of the product on people, other species, and the natural world, and then share what they learned with their peers.
Youth brainstorm phrases or slogans about compassion toward people, animals, and the planet. They choose one and create a sticker or badge to wear to promote their humane message.
Based on the lesson featured above, How Much Does That Really Cost?, this one-to-one digital learning experience includes slides and interactive activities, serving as a ready-to-teach lesson.
