5 Animal Gives Students Can Do In Their Remote Classrooms
These animal gives are perfect giving ideas that students can do in their remote classrooms. It has almost been one full year since the World Health Organization declared a world pandemic, almost a year! People around the globe adopted new ways of life to be safe. One of these new ways of living included the remote classroom to keep students and teachers safe. School remains an important part of life, for our socialization, learning and mental health. While some kids went back to their classroom to learn again in person, many kids around the world remain at home and continue with school remotely.

Although remote school has brought on some challenges, it also created new opportunities. Teachers and students alike have found ways to connect to each other and their communities through remote giving and have benefited from these new ideas. Students continued to give in their remote classrooms to ensure kids remain engaged and continue to make a difference in the world. Being remote doesn’t mean being disconnected. Students have found in some ways they are more connected. Remote classrooms can provide new and fun experiences while providing students and teachers new ways to give.
Animal Gives Are Important – Animals Need Our Help
Animals are an important part of our community and ecosystems. Creating ways to support animals within a remote classroom environment can be a challenge but also a fun way to discover new giving ideas. We have animals all around us – in our homes, in our backyards, in various landscapes, in oceans, lakes, rivers and creeks. Wherever we look, we can find animals that will benefit from our help. Now more than ever we have to continue to look for new ways to give to our animals and our planet.
5 Ways Students Can Give to Animals In Their Remote Classrooms
- Donate to your local animal rescue/SPCA – you can donate your allowance, you can fundraise in your classroom or in your school and donate it to your local animal shelter. Donations are even more necessary during the pandemic when volunteers and in-kind donations are much more limited.
- Research plant based meals – give to animals around the world by eating meat-free once per week. Research easy to make and tasty meal ideas in your remote classroom and try them at home. Make sure to share any recipe, meals or snacks that you enjoy and spread the knowledge to other remote classrooms.
- Sponsor an animal – make your animal give have a lasting impact on endangered species around the world. World Wildlife Fund is one organization that has animals to sponsor and they provide adoption kits to bring the learning home. These make great gifts for any occasion – you can send a sponsored gift pack to a friend and give to an animal of your choice anywhere in the world.
- Pet supplies that give back – if you have a pet at home you can do your animal give by ordering pet supplies from a company that donates partial proceeds to a local animal shelter. Many pet stores have foundations or support their local shelters and rescue agencies. Make sure to look before you buy and you can do your animal give every time you look after your pet at home.
- Give to animals by spreading the love – spread joy by sharing your love of animals through social media. Take photos of your pet and share them on social media or send emails to friends and family far away. Raise awareness of endangered species by sharing photos and facts about animals around the world.
