ANIMAL lovers can get a helping paw with homeschooling, thanks to the Cats Protection charity.
It has launched Moggy Modules, five new online learning tools aimed at children.
Each pack includes cat-themed worksheets, quizzes, creative writing exercises, feline facts, recipes and other fun learning activities linked to one of the five cat welfare needs; a place to live, behaviour, the right diet, good healthcare and space.
The packs have been created by Cats Protection’s educational experts to help young learners discover more about our feline friends and their welfare needs, with age-appropriate learning tools for children aged five to seven and seven to 11.
On completing #TheMoggyModules, children can download and print a colour certificate to celebrate their knowledge of the five cat welfare needs.
The Moggy Modules support Cats Protection’s call for animal welfare to be included as a mainstream topic in the National Curriculum to give children a basic understanding of how to respect and care for animals.
Shelley Brown, Cats Protection’s education team manager, said: “Children learn best and stay focused longer if they enjoy what they are doing. Home schooling can be fun for families.
“Our Moggy Modules are designed to give parents a helping hand, while teaching children about better animal welfare and encouraging them to be better stewards of our environment for years to come.”
