Connections to the National Science Education Standards

Eco-Schools USA is a holistic program that strives to make environmental awareness and action an intrinsic part of the life and culture of a school - not to add additional curricula to an already-full class schedule.

National Wildlife Federation has identified various areas of primary focus or “pathways” to help a school become an Eco-School. To assist educators in weaving the Eco-Schools USA program into their existing curriculum, each of these pathways has been aligned to the National Science Education Standards from which all states base their state standards. 

Please see the PDF documents below for connections, by grade level, between the Eco-Schools USA pathways and the content areas of the standards.
