FutureFit Extension Activities


Discuss with your students that for the differently-abled, pets are sometimes more than just friends: Sometimes people have pets as service animals to help keep them safe or help them do human tasks! Have your students work on researching how service animals are really like best friends to their owners. Have a classroom discussion after the activity to have your students share their findings.
