  • Sustainability Foundations is the introductory course to EVERFI’s sustainability curriculum. In this lesson, students learn about the interconnectedness of environmental and human systems. They are asked to reflect on the kind of future they want for the world, what it will take to get there, and the impact that individuals can have on the environment.
  • Plants, Animals and Our World covers topics like human health, climate change, global resource constraints, and biodiversity. This course will use science and social studies content to build an understanding that we are all responsible for our planet. Students will walk away with an understanding that every choice we make impacts others. Learners will explore the interconnectedness of environmental systems and how to make informed decisions to improve the health of those systems.
  • Ready to Recycle builds on the knowledge and skills that students learned in Sustainability Foundations and helps students develop strategies for becoming better informed consumers when it comes to recycling. Students will learn about single-stream recycling, the environmental impacts of mining and refining raw materials to be used in consumer goods, and how to make sustainable choices.

The Everfi courses are designed for grades 5 and up, but teachers of younger students interested in sustainability will also find the information useful.
