Environmental Literacy Teacher Guides

The National Geographic Environmental Literacy Teacher Guides prepare upper elementary and middle school teachers to cover critical environmental topics in their classrooms. The guides provide content background for teachers, focusing especially on concepts that are challenging for students to learn. Each guide is focused on a single topic: climate, ocean, energy, or freshwater. The guides are aligned to both the California Standards and the EEI Model Curriculum.
