Developing a sense of responsibility is a critical component to character and citizenship education. Learning about and recognizing the value of responsibility can empower students to make good choices for themselves and consider how their actions affect others, animals and the environment. In terms of animal care, being responsible is crucial as animals rely on us to meet their needs—every day, for their entire lives.
