Interview with our AnimalSmart™ Primary spokes-kid Emerson!
What is a circle of compassion?
What does widening your circle of compassion mean?
Join us in our latest AnimalSmart video, “Widening Our Circle of Compassion,” as we interview, Emerson, spokes-kid for the AnimalSmart™ humane education program, to learn more about circles of compassion and the future for animals!
This video will inspire your children to think about which elements of the living world are important to them. In other words, what is inside their circle of compassion? They can even interview family and friends to learn more about each other. What is different about their circles of compassion? What is the same?
Here are some more questions:
- How do you think your circle of compassion has changed over time?
- What can you do to widen your circle of compassion?
- Looking to the future, what is your hope for animals?
Share how to #beanimalsmart with us!
We’d love to see what they create this week! Maybe your child would like to create a collage of pictures showing the animals, people and the natural environments that are inside their circle of compassion. Share on your social media using the hashtag #beanimalsmart and explore what others families are sharing by following the hashtag.
