If you submitted an entry, thank you for your participation in the Pets in the Classroom Lesson Plan Contest. Once again, we were overwhelmed with the response, with nearly one hundred entries submitted! All of the lesson plans exhibited amazing creativity, thoughtfulness and dedication to enhancing the classroom experience with pets.

Our judges had a very difficult time selecting just one winner in each category. The entries were evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Progressive– having the ability to communicate multiple topics or one topic across different depths of knowledge
  • Interactive-having the students or parents actively seek out and record their knowledge
  • Thorough-lesson plan is complete with stated objectives and evaluation of results
  • Challenging-the students are pushed to expand their knowledge and pets are an integral part of the classroom curriculum

The Pet Care Trust sincerely appreciates your support of the Pets in the Classroom program and your willingness to share your lesson plans with other teachers. Lesson Plans are available on this page: Teacher Lesson Plans.  We wish you a successful school year with your students and your classroom pet!
