This year prepare your students to become environmental stewards of their community. There are various organizations offering free education about the importance of maintaining a beautiful environment. Some of these programs start as early as elementary school and continue to high school.
One of the organizations, Asombro Institute for Science Education, offers a free curriculum entirely online. To find out more click here.  This program is designed for 6th-12th graders and aligns with the Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core State Standards, focusing specifically on climate change impacts on Agricultural systems in the Southwest.
