Celebrating World Animal Day in Your School

The World Animal Day is celebrated annually on the 4th of October, which in reality turns out to be the whole week event.

Here are a few things that teachers can do to celebrate the animal week:

  • Organize an animal-themed painting competition in a class.
  • Organize an animal-themed essay writing competition in a class, similar to one shown on the right.
  • Ask students to bring animal-themed articles, videos, etc. They could even have them downloaded from YouTube, which could be played in the class.
  • Help students launch a school recycling campaign to protect the school habitat and resources that school's teachers and students share.
  • Ask children to build small shelters with old cartons for the street dogs around their homes so that they would be warm during the winter season.
