- This activity is just one part of a range of resources addressing the needs of young people who have been involved, or who are at risk of being involved, in cruelty to animals. Our online assessment tool Developing a suitable intervention programme (Word 17KB) will help you create individualised intervention programmes from these resources.
- In this activity, young people look at animals in different scenarios. They consider how they would feel in each situation and then consider how the animal might feel.
- They will begin to develop an understanding that:
- animals and humans can experience a range of positive and negative emotions
- animals can’t always show their feelings in a way we can recognise, therefore they should always be given the benefit of the doubt in situations where they could be suffering.
- It’s essential to complete the activity Smiley face in this section beforehand.
