dc.description.abstract The use of environmental science curricula in the classroom is an essential tool in educating young children about the ever-changing environment we live in today. Teachers need to expose children to real problems and environmental issues existing in the world, and should allow children to apply knowledge to those problems at hand. Because children are the future leaders for our world, developing an awareness and interest in our world's changing climate may encourage children to take an active role in doing what is best for our planet. In response to this need, we have developed an environmental curricula review that evaluates the content of many environmental educational resources, a resource guide for teachers that explains the strengths and weaknesses of those resources, and adaptations from sample lessons to the Indiana Academic Standards. The Teacher Resource Guide has been electronically sent to the Ball State PDS schools for their use. The curricula we reviewed include Project Wild, Project Wet, Facing the Future: Climate Change, Project LEAP, Project Learning Tree: The Changing Forest, Forest Research Environmental Education Network, and Padilla Bay.
