When the World Went Quiet: An Invitation

The objective of this curriculum is to engage students in understanding that humans are a part of nature, not apart from nature. Through this curriculum, participants will know and be able to:

  • • increase their understanding of nature (and their role within it);
  • • understand the role of other species within nature (and how they are similar/different to us); and
  • • advocate for and act on behalf of wildlife.

  • A series of four (4) cumulative sessions are designed to draw on students' natural curiosity by comparing and contrasting characteristics of humans as a species with various wildlife species. Using tailored activities and homework assignments, students gain understanding through progressive normalization, without making animals "human" by giving them human characteristics and attributes.

"Through engaging illustrations and poetry, this delightful book tells the tale of how animals returned to a more free and wide-ranging existence when a global pandemic kept people inside, reminding us that the world is full of magical creatures that are a vital, if usually unseen, part of our natural community. Here’s hoping that a return to normal life for us will include more room for them."
