We are excited to offer these free lessons to PreK–12 educators who are looking to foster environmental literacy, social entrepreneurship, interest in green careers, and student innovation. This package includes a growing number of lessons for every grade level including 21 lessons in English and Spanish from our Sustainable Intelligence curriculum.
EcoRise Freemium lessons include:
Introduction to Sustainable Intelligence
These lessons set the stage for students of all ages to develop sustainable intelligence by understanding how innocent actions can turn into unsustainable practices that impact everyone and the Earth we call home.
My Water Footprint
Students explore how water footprints are an invaluable tool for individuals, businesses, and even nations to identify patterns of water use so that they can more effectively manage water resources. Then they take a close look at their own habits related to the direct and virtual use of water, including how everyday activities like eating and shopping impact their water consumption.
These six engaging lessons provide students with the tools they need to measure their own resource consumption and understand how their behaviors compare to those of households across the world.
This hands-on activity encourages young students to get creative with an art project they can use to witness the germination process, learn how to care for seeds and seedlings, and discuss why seeds are so important.
In this green building lesson, students learn that in addition to systems thinking and life-cycle analysis, another important aspect of successful green building projects is an integrative process.
