This day and age, it seems as though more and more children are disconnected from nature. However, our future leaders need to be equipped for tomorrow's challenges. As teachers, it is important that we prepare our children for the future that they will inherit. This section includes lessons on Environmental studies from learning about recycling to the state of our ozone layer. The Environmental lesson plan section will continue to grow as more teachers like you share their work with the Teacher.org community. The lessons you see here have been created by real teachers working in schools across the United States. We encourage you to contact us in order to share your inspiring lessons.
