Times are tight and free is fabulous right? Here is a list of free educational resources to take advantage of. I hope you find something that tickles your fancy. :D

Visit Sharetheworld.org to order a Free K-5 Lesson Plan on the humane treatment of animals. From the site:
Share the World is a free humane education lesson plan for K-5 teachers that’s designed to help your students better understand and appreciate the animals with whom we share our world. In the reproducible activities that form the heart of this humane education program, your students will use their thinking and writing skills to imagine the feelings and consider the incredible abilities of other animals, examine how our relationships with them have changed through history, discover alternatives to their use, and respond to situations in which their well-being is threatened.
