Animal research has played a vitally important role in today’s society, regardless of the opinions behind it. However, educational lesson plans regarding animal research at the secondary school level have been virtually non-existent. This creative component looked to bridge that gap by creating two correlating lesson plans: (1) explaining the history of animal usage and regulations in research settings and (2) delving into United States legislation that looks to preserving welfare in research settings and developing new legislation that would further enhance animal welfare. The lesson plans were developed utilizing the theory behind Bloom’s taxonomy, and include national AFNR standards that are pertinent to each.
