     So, pretty much every child loves cats and/or dogs! This amazing FREE curriculum from IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) has everything you need to teach your students about these amazing animals.

     Not only will your students learn about these animals, but they will also learn about how and why we need to take care of these fantastic creatures!

     I am pretty excited about finding this resource. I know that even though the lessons are for K-5, my 6th graders are going to enjoy the lessons and activities that are included. (The 28 page download is jam-packed with Discussion Questions, Review Sheets, Worksheets, and a Student Magazine.)

The FREE Teaching Resources provided include:

-An 18 minutes video to introduce the lessons to your students

-CCSS Alignment Charts for Grades K-2 and Grades 3-5
-Inforgraphic for your classroom
-Printable Poster set
-Lesson plans for two grade bands: Grades K-2 and Grades 3-5

-Links to Activities and Crafts

     And the truly BEST part is that for EVERY FREE DOWNLOAD, We are Teachers will donate $1 to IFAW!!!

I hope you will check out this amazing resource and use it in your classroom. If dogs and cats aren't your thing, you can also check out lesson plans and information on:
-Marine Animals

AND, because you read all the way to the end, you can enter to win a CLASS SET (30 Key Chains) to hand out as prizes to your students, kids, friends, grand kids, etc! So go ahead, enter RIGHT NOW! :)

  11. I love my pups. One is 90 pound golden and one is a 3 pond Yorkie - the best of friends. Thanks for the resource. My kids will love it.

  12. Thanks so much - Im thinking i could use this with our Daisy girl scout troop Animal Journey

  13. We have 7 cats, and we love them all dearly, but the 100 pound inside dog named Dugger stole my heart. He was dumped at my school almost 7 years ago and was the best thing that happened to me while at that school.

  14. Thanks for the continued sharing! I love hearing about everyone's favorite pets! Good luck in the drawing everyone! WAHOO!
