Pandemic Pet Population: The Reproductive Responsibility of Pet Owners
Your feedback is important to us!
After viewing our curriculum units, please take a few minutes to help us understand how the units, which were created by public school teachers, may be useful to others.
Each year, my Kindergarten class completes an extensive unit on pets. Through the theme-based curriculum provided by The Treasure Tree the children are exposed to the theme Pet Show. This theme introduces specific types of pets, their habitats, nutritional needs and physical characteristics. Although these aspects are covered through the recommended curriculum resources, information is lacking in the area of reproductive responsibility, especially as it applies to pet health and overpopulation. My unit, "Pandemic Pet Population: The Reproductive Responsibility of Pet Owners," will fill the void of information in this area through its discussion of mammal, bird, fish and reptile reproduction and how the lack of reproductive control can lead to poor pet health, overcrowding and eventually death.
