Teachers are encouraged to individually tailor processes/activities to meet specific state and grade level curricular standards. Teaching Pet Emergency Preparedness was created as an educational resource on incorporating the family pet in the emergency evacuation plan and decision making. These activities will call upon students to explore emergency management websites and learn how the life choices they make effect them, their families and the family pet, as they develop a plan for their pet’s lives.
Before beginning this WebQuest, teachers should share and read with students, the [Emergency Preparedness] article from ASPCA Animalessons®.
Students should have basic skill in word processing and in navigating the Internet.
