PETA’s Humane Education Division TeachKind Provides Education Materials for Homeschooling



Lisbet Chiriboga

Teachkind Program Manager


Many parents have decided to homeschool their children, feeling that the virtual programs provided by their children’s schools aren’t adequate. To help, PETA’s humane education division, TeachKind, is providing free humane education materials for parents to use at home.


Kids are naturally interested in animals, so parents can harness this interest to engage even the most reluctant learners during what can be a stressful time. By teaching children about easy and important ways they can look out for and help animals, parents can not only motivate children academically, but improve their social interactions, all while fostering empathy—something that provides a lasting and wonderful life lesson. With so much going on in the world right now, it’s important for kids to know that some things are still within their control—such as how they treat others, including other animals.

On October 7th, PETA’s Lisbet Chiriboga will be available to talk about the TeachKind program and howtalking about real-life issues engages young people in a gentle, age-appropriate way, allowing them to start learning about what happens to animals they know and ones they have never met.She can also share how families can access dozens of free lesson plans and activities at, to help keep students’ academic skills sharp and promote compassion for animals while learning at home.
