Even though many classrooms have gone to virtual learning this fall to protect students and teachers from COVID-19, there’s no reason to miss out on your favorite animal-oriented lesson plan. The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR) is taking its youth education programs virtual to ensure teachers and students continue to receive animal education!
Three different classroom presentations are available for elementary through high school students, combining a hands-on approach to learning with age-appropriate information to engage children. Presentations run from 20 to 45 minutes, depending on the age of the students, the size of the group, and the topic. Here is some b-roll of what to expect to see during our virtual presentations. HSPPR is charging a small program fee of $10 to $25; however, teachers can also apply for a scholarship to cover the cost of the program if needed.
They’ve also put more resources for students and teachers alike on their website. Students can take a virtual tour of HSPPR, watch interviews with several HSPPR staff members about what it takes to succeed in their positions, get pet behavior resources, find HSPPR statistics for school projects, and more.
