They call him Lucky…

Hi all!

Long time no post!

However, if  you love animals (who dosesn´t?), I think you´ll like this set of materials I managed to put together and I´d like to share with you.

Please download them from:

http://users.nlink.com.br/~young/they_call_him_lucky.zip

My source of inspiration was a story in a Recife newspaper about a horse which collapsed out of exhaustion in the middle of a busy street and on top of this the owner decided it would give him a beating. He just abandoned the creature there, and passers by, revolted by the scene , decided to call the Society for Animal Protection . Fortunately, this story had a happy ending.

See the rest of the story for yourselves (begin with text: Final Feliz) All the other files will hopefully be self-explanatory for you to put a lesson together on “Protecting Animals from Cruel Treatment”.

This can extend to an even more surprising discussion: What about protecting fish from suffering (see text from the Independent). If you decide to go this far, there is a set of videos on a DVD with Fiona that has a humurous clip called “Can fish remember?” (the answer: Yes!).

Sorry there´s no accompanying plan, but e-mail me if you need more information.

If you´ve been looking for an unorthodox lesson, I hope this comes in handy.
