Free lesson plans, activities, videos, and more are headed straight to inboxes of teachers and parents as The Fur-Bearers ramp up our Humane Education program this year.
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 Fur-Bearers are also happy to provide in-class presentations in the Vancouver area, and digital in-class presentations (via Zoom, free and secure) across Canada. These presentations can focus on wildlife and co-existence, or the fur industry and fashion, and are tailored for the appropriate grade level. Click here for details!
New in 2018 is our monthly Humane Education eNewsletter – a themed package with links to lesson plans, activities, videos, and other great content for teachers and parents. Click here to sign up to receive the emails, which should start at the end of January 2018 (you’ll need to “Opt-in” for emails from The Fur-Bearers, and can add Humane Education as an additional interest).
Because of compassionate teachers and parents, who value critical thinking and curiosity about the natural world in children, the future of Canada is brighter than ever.
