Animal Related Guidance: Teaching Social Skills Using Pets or Puppets Grades 2-5

Patty Stang-Erickson

 

This resource will bring an animal-loving slant into your guidance lessons and provide you with a collection of more than 100 lessons, reproducible worksheets, games and discussion questions that are ready to use. For some of these lessons, you might find it helpful to bring in a described pet from home. For others, you might be able to use some of the pets found in classrooms in your school. If you cannot find a live animal ambassador you might use puppets, stuffed animals or printed animal images.

Animal-assisted guidance and therapy has been shown to increase empathy for others, acting as a catalyst for the expression of emotions, enhancing self-esteem, improving self-control, expanding social competence, decreasing feelings of stress and diminishing feelings of social isolation.

Unforgettable animal-themed lessons are provided to help children learn about topics such as:

  • Attitude
  • Self-confidence
  • Personal character
  • Responsibility
  • Empathy
  • Problem solving
  • Bullying
  • Disabilities
  • Relaxation
