Cats, Dogs and Us: All-Age Special Schools Edition

Special Schools Lessons CoverCats and dogs are great friends to our students and through a new free pack from the International Fund for Animal Welfare, teachers will be able to explore with students how to return that friendship. In learning about cats and dogs through the Cats, Dogs and Us Special Schools Edition resource, students will also learn about things useful to their own lives, such as how we express emotions and what we all need to be happy and healthy. The resource includes a colorful magazine to share with students, lesson plans and a number of supporting activities including songs about cats and dogs, animal sensory experiences to explore with students, symbols to support communication, role-play activities and suggestions for a public performance based on students’ learning. We hope teachers will find something for every one of their students in this pack, including those who access their learning in a purely sensory way and those achieving at a level equivalent to their mainstream peers.
