Pulaski Students Engage in Sloth Civics Lesson
Ms. Hubbard’s fifth grade class at Pulaski Street Intermediate School recently learned about animal welfare and civic engagement during a lesson in humane education. After reading about sloths and the recent local controversy surrounding their use in business, students were eager to learn more about a potential bill to protect these animals as well as to explore the roles students can play in the legislative process. The fifth graders were also visited by President and Executive Director of Humane Long Island John Di Leonardo, Vice President of Humane Long Island Juliana Di Leonardo and Suffolk County Legislator Al Krupski, who all admired the students’ enthusiasm and compassion.
