Our FREE Green Classroom program helps teachers integrate conservation education into curriculum and initiate positive action in the classroom. Through workshops, pledges, and action projects we challenge students to think critically about their use of natural resources and see how waste, water, and energy are integral parts of our everyday lives. Hands-on activities and projects provide them the opportunity to brainstorm solutions and take action to promote conservation.

Each workshop is grade level appropriate, engages the students, and encourages direct involvement and initiative in their own learning.

Teacher testimonials

"The presenter was fabulous, had a great presence, and knew how to work with the kiddos! My students learned a bunch and we able to talk about it later using the key-chains and bracelets."

"The lessons were developmentally appropriate and engaging. The kids really came to understand the vocabulary word, 'conservation'. We have made a pledge and we plan to stick to it!"

"The students continue to carry the Food to Flowers bin to the school collection bins every morning as part of their routine. They are managing this by themselves with barely any reminders from me."

"All the information was grade level appropriate and useful. It was good for the kids to hear the effects of littering, landfills and how we can help clean up our earth by recycling."

"I liked how you brought in support from other community groups to help us plan and execute the actions. It's good to align with a larger community."

"Everyone took the pledge to heart. I like the way it fits in with our science standards."

"Loved the pacing, lesson objectives, and activities!!!! I liked that it tied in so well to themes that we explore all year long in the fifth grade."

"The hands-on and visuals are great teaching tools. Students loved the felt board visuals, and it made it possible for all students to comprehend and participate in the lesson."
