The Education and the Environment Initiative (EEI) is a free, state-sponsored K-12 curriculum that teaches science and history/social science standards through an environmental lens. EEI supports many of the concepts covered in Inside the Outdoors programs and the current state standards.
Visit the EEI website for resources and the curriculum,
Below are links to charts of EEI lessons that support the various Field Trips and Traveling Scientist programs with Inside the Outdoors. We recommend using these lessons as pre- or post-activities to help support your students learning.
