This morning, two volunteers from the Alliston & District Humane Society (ADHS) made a two-hour round trip drive to Rama Central, to pick up the brochures our class designed to help ADHS educate children about animal welfare. The brochures, which were completed as a Media Literacy project, were featured in two previous BLOG posts:
Using Media Skills to Educate Others, Part 2
Using Media Skills to Educate Others, Part 1
During today's visit, students engaged in a lively discussion about shelter animals, rescued pets and animal care with Audrey and Jim. Our visitors thanked us for all our help with "Princess the dog" and with their educational project. Audrey and Jim also brought the class donuts, for which students were very grateful.
We want to thank Audrey and Jim for visiting our class, and the Alliston & District Humane Society for providing us with an opportunity to complete a school assignment with a real world purpose!
Here are some pictures of pamphlet/flyer authors with Jim and Audrey:
Pamphlet topic: How You Can Help the Humane Society
Pamphlet topic: How Kids Helped Princess
Pamphlet topic: Proper Animal Care
Pamphlet topic: Pet Over-population
Pamphlet topic: Kids and Aggressive Dogs
Flyer topic: Fun Animal Facts!
Next step: Audrey and Jim will show our brochures to members of the ADHS Board of Directors. Then, the best of what we created will be desktop published and used to help educate children who visit the shelter.
Thank you for visiting our class BLOG. If you have any questions or comments, feel free e-mail me (Margaret Black): email@example.com or to add a comment to this page.

Jim and I had a wonderful visit today. The kids were amazing and it was such a pleasure to spend time with all of them. Everyone shared their animal stories with us and we could really feel their enthusiasm. Mrs. Black and all the students were truly an inspiration for us. We brought home the brochures that were designed and they are packed with great information and amazing art work. I'm sure that the ADHS Board of Directors are going to be very impressed and all the students should be very proud. Great job everyone! Thanks again to all of you!!!
Thank you so much for making that long drive today, Audrey. We hope the Board can make good use of our input.
It was worth the drive to meet all of you. Hope to visit again soon!
I too would like to thank Mrs. Black and her great students for hosting us at Rama Central today. Once we get all the brochures edited and coordinated we will be sure to get a copy of the finished product to you.
It's heart warming to see such sincere care and compassion expressed toward our animal friends. People who are good to animals tend to be good for society as well.
Thanks, Jim! We really enjoyed your visit today.
