Clean and Green First Grade Program Guide

Clean and Green is a flexible guide for teachers and youth development professionals with engaging activities for schools and out of school programs. Kids will enjoy any of the activities on their own, but teaching them as comprehensive units will have a bigger impact on academic and environmental education outcomes. Please email Heather Staebell or complete the Clean and Green survey here to provide feedback about Clean and Green.

The Clean and Green 1st Grade Matrix of 23 activities is based on the Iowa Core for Science, Social Studies, and 21st Century Skills and on the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and English Language Arts.  The Four Keys of Character Education–supportive, challenging community; self and other study; and public performance–-provide assurance that the lessons represent a variety of educational experiences. Please check out the Clean and Green 1st Grade Program here--
