Teaching Aids

The Mojave Environmental Education Consortium (MEEC) aims to improve the environmental literacy of students, teachers, and communities of the Mojave Desert Region by actively providing educational resources including transportation and mini-grants, and environmental library, curriculum and scholarship information, a speakers’ bureau, and teacher links focused on the High Desert environment.

California Environmental Protection Agency’s Education and the Environmental Initiative (EEI) This K-12th grade curriculum is comprised of 85 units teaching select Science and History-Social Science academic standards. Each EEI Curriculum unit teaches these standards to mastery using a unique set of California Environmental Principles and Concepts

Closing the Loop is CalRecycle’s interdisciplinary standardized K-6 curriculum emphasizing waste prevention, recycling, composting, and vermicomposting through hands-on activities.

CalRecycle also maintains an instructional materials page, a comprehensive list of online K-12 education publications and more educational resources and information

The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency lists environmental education resources that can be ordered online, by telephone, or downloaded.

US EPA’s waste education materials includes basic facts, materials and information about  composting and recycling, curriculum, activities, awards, and grants.
