Elementary School Sloth Challenge 2016
CALLING ON ALL YOU AMAZING TEACHERS/ADMINISTRATORS/COUNSELORS!
A fun and interactive way to inspire kindness to animals and the environment
The Sloth Institute (TSI) is excited to announce our celebration of International Sloth month this October with our 2nd annual Elementary School Sloth Challenge. If you would like to have your class participate in teaching our children about conservation, sign up here. Last year’s campaign was quite special and the teachers who participated expressed that it was a very special experience for the kids.
Throughout the month of October you will receive weekly lessons and activities to teach your students all about sloths, meanwhile inspiring kindness to animals and the environment.
Lessons will include:
How to be a Responsible Sloth Tourist
Why it’s Important Not to Support the Pet Trade
We will share some fun ideas for an activity (such as a sloth coloring page which we will provide) and a few other fun things! Students are then encouraged to come up with an anti-pet trade campaign to submit by October 31st. The winning campaign will receive a 15 minute Skype call with the Co-Founder and Sloth Director of TSI, as well as author of Slothlove, Sam Trull, featuring some special appearances by our sloths!
Here is what Ms. Yang, the teacher of last year’s winning class, had to say about the experience:
“Today was such an amazing and educational experience! My students were so happy, they said it was the best day of their lives!”
