Savesky, Kathleen, Ed.; Malcarne, Vanessa, Ed.
This curriculum guide provides the framework for integrating humane education into the traditional elementary school curriculum. The activities in this guide are designed to help students think critically and clarify their own feelings about various issues, as well as to provide them with factual information and understandings about animals. Thirty-five concepts have been identified under four major chapters: (1) Human/Animal Relationships; (2) Pet Animals; (3) Wild Animals; and (4) Farm Animals. Chapters contain concepts and activities for each of the four curriculum areas: Language Arts, Social Studies, Mathematics, and Health/Science. The curriculum guide consists of four books encompassing the following levels: Preschool to Kindergarten, grades 1-2, 3-4, and 5-6. The same subtitles are used in each of the four levels. Appendices have lists of humane education resource organizations and addresses of resource publishers. (YP)
