We believe every child should be environmentally literate so they can effectively care for the planet they will inherit. Children are our strongest advocate for environmental change and truly want to make a difference in the world. We believe in giving them the education necessary to understand the facts and allow them to impact the world with their voice by sharing their knowledge and educating others.

Educate & Act™ is a free environmental education curriculum designed for grades 3-12. It provides 21, easy-to-implement, curriculum units that cover a large range of environmental topics like recycling, energy, water, air quality, composting, trees, endangered species and more. Lessons provide helpful components like presentation materials, lesson plans, resources, templates and projects.
Educate & Act™ is correlated to the Common Core State Standards and the AASL Standards for the 21st-Century Learner. The program utilizes the challenged-based learning approach. This approach focuses on increasing student engagement by providing collaborative learning experiences, in which teachers and students work together to explore compelling issues, propose solutions to real problems, and take action. The approach asks students to reflect on their learning and the impact of their actions, and present their ideas and solutions.
Educate & Act™ has many opportunities for students to utilize technology for research, creating public service announcements and in-class presentations. Children truly want to make a difference in the world and do things to help our environment. Educate & Act™ offers them an engaging curriculum that gives them a voice.
Teachers simply, go to www.ecoseducation.com to register and download the materials.
