Welcome to AnimalSmart™ Primary – a fun learning tool for your kids at home
Welcome to AnimalSmart™ Primary – a fun learning tool for your kids at home to learn how to #beanimalsmart!
This week, for our first lesson, we invite you to explore with your kids what it means to care for and be committed to companion animals.
Watch our latest video with your kids to learn:
- What does it mean to be committed to our animal friends?
- What are a (or your) companion animal’s basic needs? What do companion animals need to be happy?
In this week’s video, kids will have fun learning about compassion, commitment and care while expanding their knowledge in Language, Arts, and Science.
This week’s lesson and related links to Ontario curriculum expectations can be found in Strand 1 Lesson 1 of the AnimalSmart™ manual, available for free at www.animalsmart.ca.
Share how to #beanimalsmart with us!
