Environmental Education, 2011 cover page This resource document has been prepared to assist teachers in bringing environmental education into the classroom in each subject area in Grades 1 to 8 and Kindergarten programs. In the elementary curriculum, most of the expectations connected explicitly with aspects of environmental education are found in the science and technology curriculum and the social studies, history, and geography curriculum. In other subject areas, connections can be made to environmental topics or issues in various ways, and some suggestions for making such connections are given in brief comments.

The references in this document are to current curriculum documents as of April 2011. This resource will be updated regularly to reflect changes in the curriculum documents.
