CLASSROOM – Pets
The classroom and pets often go together. Pets offer learning opportunities that help children care for living things, take responsibility, and work as a team. Pets do the same thing in our homes. They also offer companionship and are as much a part of the family as every other member. They rely on us for food, shelter, grooming, and exercise. Do you have a pet in your classroom? If so, celebrate your classroom pet on National Pet Day. This week’s projects offer something for everyone.
HOW TO OBSERVE in the CLASSROOM- Pets
Download and print this week’s project and give your students the opportunity to explore the national days in their own way. It might surprise you what they discover! We’re often surprised by our own discoveries!
Celebrate Every Day in the Classroom by:
1. Asking a question about the day or observance and finding the answer.
2. Exploring the subject further. Whether you read a book, interview an expert, watch a documentary, or run an experiment, there is always more to learn about the observance.
3. Writing about the day or observance. You can write about what you learned or what the day means to you.
4. Telling someone about the day. You might be sharing information that is helpful to someone. Or, you might brighten someone’s day.
5. Solving a problem. Many observances discuss issues around the world that need fixing. How would you fix it?
6. Being creative. Draw, paint, build, design, bake, create your idea of what the observance means.
Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
