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

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