Mow Wow is a New Animal in Humane Education.

The Mow Wow Animals online teaching program recognizes the natural affinity that children have for animals. It is designed to activate students’ imagination as they learn about animals and the world around them and to encourage values of respect and compassion. The bilingual K­–5, lessons are infused with stories from world cultures, poetry, short videos, and hands-on enrichment activities. Three distinct units for each grade level cover such topics as Animals in the Natural World, Who Lives in the Backyard?, Pets and Working Animals, and The Importance of Wild Places.

Why Mow Wow?

  • Provides our youth with an ethical framework to create a more caring society
  • Aligns with K–5 content standards in language arts, science, and social studies
  • Supports the California Code of Education’s Character Education requirement
  • Encourages hands-on learning in digital research, peer learning, and community interaction
  • Supplies teachers with an easy-to-use, adaptable humane education curriculum

Many children gain emotional support and develop empathy from a connection with an animal who loves them unconditionally.
