ANIMAL HEROES START AT HOME:  A UNIT OF LEARNING GRADE 5 - GRADE 6 

Animals are all around us.  From the wildlife outside our windows to the food we eat and of course the pets we welcome into our families.  The needs and feelings of animals and humans overlap; we are not too different from one another. 

The Animal Heroes unit of learning looks at why it is important to respect living creatures, and the laws in place to help protect them.  Students will discover the role of RSPCA Victoria as a community organisation, an animal shelter and law enforcement agency. 

Choose to register your Grade 5-6 class for the entire unit of learning or just one or two of our interactive animal themed sessions tailored to your virtual classroom.
 

Cost:  Free 

Farm Animal Rescue - LIVE Barn Session  

Book in a LIVE class with an RSPCA Educator to meet one of our beautiful cows, a rescued pony and some of our woollier paddock animals and find out how they arrived at RSPCA and what we do in taking care for them.  Don’t just watch, we love to respond to your comments and questions in real time.   

Small Pets - Big Responsibility  

LIVE lesson Guinea pigs and rabbits have needs and feelings just like us. Let us introduce your students to some of our smallest RSPCA education animals. Discover what they need to be happy and healthy and how their care compares with other animals. Your students can ask and answer questions in real time via moderated chat function.  

RSPCA Inspector for Day – LIVE Lesson and co-operative brainstorming activity

Have you ever wanted to find out about the role of an RSPCA Inspector?  These animal police officers have an important job in responding to reports of animal cruelty and neglect.  This activity gives students the opportunity to step into the boots of an RSPCA Inspector and identify the basic needs of animals and work collaboratively to discover where these have been neglected.   

Learning Outcomes:  

  • Identify and discuss the basic needs of various animals.
  • Discover that humans and animals have similar basic needs and feelings.
  • Learn about the responsibilities in looking after pets at home.
