If you’re into green living then you’ve most likely heard of No Impact Man. If not watch the trailer below then keep reading for info about a nice little environmental education curriculum package you can score from the No Impact Project website.
The No Impact Project website is a supplement to the film and contains plenty of information that can help you lower your eco-impact, including a cool Environmental Education Curriculum for Middle and High School Teachers. I think it’s a great idea for homeschoolers as well.
The fact that people have been drawn in positive ways to green living through the film made it clear that the movie and book would make great tools for eco-education, so the No Impact Project website released it’s own set of learning tools for middle school and high school teachers and students.
This curriculum uses No Impact Man and the ideas behind it to help promote green living to middle and high school students, allowing them to explore the effects their everyday behavior has on the environment, their health, and their well-being. Further perks of the tools include challenges for students about how the systems in our present society influence our lifestyle choices in ways that often are not good for environment and overall the learning tools can help guide students to take action both individually and with others to bring about positive change.
Lesson Plan Features:
- All the curriculum tools are totally FREE.
- Each of the various curriculum sets can be used alone or in combo with the other plans.
- The tools are grounded in curriculum standards for Social Studies, English/Language Arts, and other subject areas.
- All can be taught in one 50-minute class period.
- The program is designed for use in grades 6-12, but parents or teachers could easily adapt the tools for older and younger students.
