Cats and Dogs

In our Cats and Dogs lesson plan, students learn some basic facts about cats and dogs, including their histories and primary characteristics. Students compare cats and dogs and discuss how they both became domesticated.

Our Cats and Dogs lesson plan introduces students to the history and characteristics of cats and dogs. The lesson explores the differences between and background of the domestication of cats and dogs. In addition, students will learn about the different breeds and behaviors of the loveable animals. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner and use their creativity to create a skit in which they “speak” to each other as a cat and dog, including information about the characteristics of each with the goal of getting adopted; they will then perform these skits for the class. Students are also asked to identify provided facts as a fact for a Cat or Dog.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the characteristics of cats and dogs, compare cats and dogs, and explain the history of cats and dogs.

    Love it!

    I was beyond excited to find this lesson. My little girl loves cats so it is always fun to be able to incorporate these fun lessons into our daily learning. Needless to say, this lesson was a hit with her and myself.
