Teacher Resources for EcoSchools

Planning Resources

Alberta Curriculum Links

Is it possible for teachers to weave more environmental and sustainability education into their everyday practice while delivering on the current curriculum?  The answer is a resounding YES! The current Alberta curriculum provides ample opportunity to make connections with the following sustainability themes:

  • Nature and place
  • Indigenous perspectives
  • Climate change
  • Municipal environmental and climate action plans and strategies (general framework coming soon)

Alberta Resources to Support EcoSchools Actions

Are you looking for support in implementing actions for EcoSchools certification?  Alberta's environmental education community offers a rich array of resources and supports such as lesson plans, videos, on-line activities, field trips and classroom visits.  For your convenience, we've organized these amazing resources by theme and EcoSchool action. 

See Alberta Resources   

For more resources to help you reach your EcoSchools goals, visit the Resource Hub.

Youth-Led Mentoring

Many of the  Alberta Youth Leaders for Environmental Education (AYLEE) members have worked on action projects before, such as vermicomposting and energy efficiency, and they would love to share their expertise with you and your students! 

Grade 7-12 teachers, encourage your students expand their EcoSchools experience by joining AYLEE. This year, AYLEE offers three levels of involvement for youth: Movers, Shakers, and Change Makers. Click here to learn more about AYLEE.
