Humane Education Lesson Plans for Pre-K to 2nd Grade

The Michigan Humane Society continually strives to be a leader in teaching humane values to students of all ages. In an effort to assist humane educators, we have made available standards-aligned lesson plans, reviewed by the Michigan Board of Education. Lesson plans may be downloaded for free in an easy-to-follow manner for teachers or youth groups. Lessons may be used for a full week of instruction focusing on humane values, spread throughout a month, or used as a theme.
