Categorising animals

This activity extends the ideas introduced in the Everyday objects activity, but it can work as a standalone session. In it, young people begin to understand the relationship between the role of animals in all our lives and our responsibilities towards them. 

They will explore the concept that:

  • more than one person may be responsible for meeting the needs of an animal
  • even if we have an indirect link with an animal, we can have a sense of responsibility towards it and take action to ensure its welfare.

Number of participants: You can run these activities with just one person or in a small group.

How long it will take: The activities will take about 15 to 30 minutes.
