Environmental Websites

By 2007, the No Child Left Behind law requires all states to test for mastery of specific science standards. What can you as a teacher do to make science education constructive, interactive, and ultimately meaningful for your students? Get them involved, and show them how to care, of course!
Working in the environment and using outdoor classrooms are an exceptional way for students to get hands-on and minds-on learning. They get to be a part of what they are studying, and this will help create lasting and meaningful science schema.

Some useful websites for environmental education:
National Arbor Day Foundation
OK Dept of Agriculture, Food and Forestry
Oklahoma Association for Environmental Ed
Project Learning Tree Grant Program
Urban and Community Forestry
What if Forestry? Educational Initiative
National Wildlife Federation/ Grants Info
