Be Kind to Animals Week (May 5-11) was established in 1915 by The American Humane Association in an effort to support animals and raise awareness about their health and safety. At Scholastic, we love animals (Clifford! Otto! Owen & Mzee!), and we consider this an incredible and important cause.
Here are a few suggestions for how to get involved (from the American Humane Association):
- Adopt an animal from a shelter or rescue
- Take care of your pet
- Appreciate wildlife
- Report animal abuse
For more ideas and resources, check out their Be Kind to Animals Week webpage.
Looking for other ways to celebrate animals with your students or children? We’ve got a ton of resources to share. Check out our animal favorites Pinterest board, our Discover More series (which is all about nature, animals, and life science), and our “Everything you Need” collections for Insects & Bugs and Clifford! And this is a lovely article on how children can learn from pets.
