Write a guide about the care of a pet.
Level: Grade 1-3
Originated by: Treetop Publishing
Using a hard-covered Bare Book, make a guide on how to care for a pet. In a classroom setting, if the student does not have a pet at home, use the classroom pet, the pet of a friend, or an imaginary pet. Research the needs of the pet, and document them with photos or illustrations in the book. This is a great reference tool to have at times when outside care is needed for the pet.
- What is the pet’s name, and what kind of pet is it?
- Is the pet friendly, shy, playful or lazy?
- How often and what time is the pet fed?
- Where is the food kept?
- How much food and water should the pet get?
- Does the pet eat the food right away, or will he save some of it?
- How often does the pet get let out to toilet?
- Do you have a fence, a tie-out, or will the pet need to be walked with a leash to toilet? Is there a special spot the pet prefers?
- Will the pet resist going out in bad weather?
- Is the pet afraid of thunderstorms?
- Where is the pet’s leash kept?
- Does the pet get let out before or after eating, or both?
- Does the pet get treats, what and when?
- Is the pet sad or does it quit eating when you are gone?
- Are there any medications the pet needs; where are they kept, and how are they given?
- Is the pet restricted to a crate or gated area when no one is home?
- What kind of exercise does the pet enjoy, and what are it’s favorite toys?
