AWI now has free lesson plans available for two of our most sought-after books, A Dangerous Life and The Magic of Touch. The lesson plans were developed by AWI in cooperation with educator Nancy Kellum Brown.
A Dangerous Life is a graphic novel that weaves lessons of conservation and compassion for all living things throughout a story about the importance of both animal and human families. The lesson plans include activity cards and worksheets that can be used on their own or in conjunction with an interactive notebook. They are applicable across a variety of subjects, including science, environmental education, social studies, and language arts for grade 6 and up.
The Magic of Touch is a compilation of many different scientific studies that establish how positive physical contact—both within and between species—has psychological and health benefits for animals and humans alike. High school teachers and college professors will find this text and accompanying lesson plans appropriate for courses involving animal behavior, ethology, environmental studies, and philosophy.
