Species And Breeds: HS.71 : Appreciating Individual Talents and Strengths (all,IA) (PDF) | (PPT)

Species And Breeds: MS.36 : Understanding Ways People Are Different (1,2,3) (PDF) | (PPT)

Ask students what the best breed is, and why (there should be disagreement). Put students in groups based upon which breed they thought best and have them compile a list of characteristics of why theirs is the best. Relate this to how people differ in our society and recognize the barriers to understanding. Compare how different breeds contribute in different ways just as different people do.
