What makes something a "Green School Lesson"?  Environmental Education is a wide-ranging discipline that includes subjects from science to social studies to art!  The goal of the Green Schools Program is to give students the knowledge and skills necessary to make responsible, informed choices about their natural environment as citizens.  Therefore, Green School Lessons must make a clear connection between the lesson or activity and the environment to be eligible for credit.  The Green Schools Committee has put together some Lesson Criteria and a basic"What IS and ISN'T a Green School Lesson" to help teachers decide if a lesson qualifies.


Here are some great sources of Environmental Education information, lessons, and classroom resources.
