Humane Education Teachers' Packet (Preschool & Kindergarten).
Designed to sensitize preschoolers and kindergartners to the responsibilities involved in caring for living things, this teacher's packet provides a variety of student worksheets and activity suggestions. Teaching plans are provided for a total of nine lessons, which can be easily integrated into other learning areas such as numbers, colors, shapes, and problem solving. Activities focus on naming animal offspring; distinguishing between plants and animals; and determining animal needs and physical characteristics. In addition, the packet provides finger puppet patterns, a barnyard song, a pet census sheet, guidelines for the care and handling of classroom pets, tips for meeting strange dogs, and a poem. Resource lists contain story books, films and filmstrips, freebies, and organizations to contact for additional materials. (LH)
