Environmental Science Teacher Resources

Environmental Science is the study of the physical, biological, and chemical conditions of the environment, and how those conditions are affected by outside forces, including climate change, global warming, pollution, and other human factors. Teaching resources on environmental science will help your class explore the implications of climate change on Earth. Find out what scientists think about this global crisis with our articles and references. You will find the perfect activity to celebrate America Recycles Day on November 15.
