Below you will find The Five Needs of Animals lessons for Kindergarten to Grade Three. There is a video, discussion questions, activities, and curricular connections included in each lesson. It is recommended to do the lessons in order.

Through these activities, students will explore the needs of animals and how animals feel (their mental state) when their needs are met. Students will also have an opportunity to compare the needs that animals have with the needs of people.
