The Education and the Environment Initiative (EEI) Curriculum

Famed naturalist John Muir captured the vital importance of education about the
environment when he said, “Tug on anything at all and you’ll find it connected to everything else in the universe.” Imagine the possibilities if that understanding began,
for students, as early as kindergarten and continued through high school. With the Education and the Environment Initiative (EEI) Curriculum, that vision is well on the way to becoming a reality.

Field-tested in kindergarten to grade twelve classrooms from San Diego to California’s North Coast, the 85 EEI Curriculum units cover selected academic content standards in both Science and History-Social Science. Each EEI Curriculum unit is designed to teach one or more standards to mastery.

The State Board of Education (SBE) unanimously approved all 85 EEI Curriculum units. With SBE’s stamp of approval, the 85 curriculum units underwent final revisions to incorporate the feedback and recommendations provided by teachers, content specialists, and SBE members. Revisions to the EEI Curriculum units are near completion. To download, visit:“EEI Curriculum”
