National Standards

The National Wildlife Federation's 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. This global program is transformative, not additive; it is a transformation in your pedagogical approach to teaching. 

The Eco-Schools USA team has worked with two major sets of national standards as they relate to science education, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), to assist educators in weaving the Eco-Schools USA program into the existing curriculum.

Next Generation Science Standards

  • Elementary School (K-5)
  • Middle School (Grades 6-8)
  • High School (Grades 9-12)

Common Core State Standards

  • Standards Website    
  • Science and Engineering Practices: Common Core Grades 6-12 Literacy for Science and Technical Subjects
