The GREENING BOOK: Being a Friend to Planet Earth is not just an informative and engaging book to teach children and inspire them to be their best - it is also a resource that lends itself to fulfill many State and National Standards in the classroom.
The attached Teacher's Guide includes seven lesson plans that link to standards in: science, language arts, character education, math, geography, history, and arts.
These lessons were designed to offer you a place to begin - they were written to address a wide range of skills and abilities. They can be easily modified to meet the unique needs of your students.
