Memorandum

ACTIVITY 1

Let the learners enjoy this – there are some wonderful stories to tell – perhaps bring some good animal novels to class – they might be tempted to read!

ACTIVITY2: WHEN PETS BECOME “PESTS”.

This is a group ACTIVITY. Let them discuss the issues in their groups and jot down notes in the space provided. Then, use these notes to compile a report.

Check the written work and control the oral.

ACTIVITY 3: HOW TO HANDLE A PROBLEM SUCCESSFULLY AND LEARN FROM IT!

READ THE ASSIGNMENT TO THE CLASS:

Identify the problem.

They must read through the list of problems. Then they must mark the situations that they have experienced.

Let them add a few extra items before you start?

GROUP ACTIVITY: Purpose: Co-operation leads to solutions.

Each group must choose a group leader to read the rules of this ACTIVITY to the group - to make sure that everybody understands what must be done.

Then they will have 6 minutes to fill in the REPORT FORM.

Make sure that the learners realize that co-operation has been valuable. It is important that learners understand that in terms of problems:

There is always someone / some animal worse off than you

That in the scheme of things, some problems are not as huge as seen at first.

That many problems are shared by hundreds and are actually common.

That all problems have solutions.

Go over the Written report Assessment Chart with them.
