Animal Helpers

An Environmental Stewardship and Earth Spirit Curriculum for Preschoolers

Animal Helpers guides preschool children on a six-session exploration of environmental stewardship, using images of animals for inspiration. It uses guided visualization to help each child identify with a specific animal which embodies positive qualities and encourages the child to be her or his best self. The animal may continue to serve as a meditation image long after the class is complete.

Animal Helpers uses sacred dance, storytelling, role playing, music, crafts, and discussion to reach each child in her or his special learning and attending style and teaches children about environmental stewardship by engaging in projects to help creatures of air, land, and water.

The central message of Animal Helpers calls all of us, no matter how small, to work together to keep our Earth safe and clean.
