Critical thinking and compassion can go hand-in-hand in classrooms across Canada this year as The Fur-Bearers unveils new additions to their Humane Education program.
Humane education is a field of study that helps young people acquire the skills necessary to make daily choices that will do the most good, and least harm for people, animals, and the planet.
By integrating activities that encourage both critical thinking and compassion into existing provincial curriculum, students will be better prepared and empowered to create social change.
The Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals works hard to provide teachers with the necessary resources to help them integrate humane education into their classrooms.
Check out the Humane Education section of TheFurBearers.com to see the latest resources, lesson plans, and contact information for more – and don’t forget, The Fur-Bearers also offers resources regarding fur-bearing animals like our field guide and conflict pamphlets that can be used in classrooms, too!
