For younger children, use this coloring page to start a discussion on helping homeless people with companion animals.
The following lesson plans are designed for high school students as supplemental classroom resources. Educators should share the lessons with their students upon viewing the Animal Museum's exhibit My Dog is My Home: The Experience of Human-Animal Homelessness. The subject matter of this exhibit lends itself to grades 9-12. Lessons encourage students to think through the complexity of homelessness and the actions they can take to be responsible citizens within their community. Additionally, this curriculum is aligned to California Public Schools Common Core and Advanced Visual Arts State Standards, Grades 9-12.
