The sixth module in our Catskills: A Sense of Place curriculum entitled Sustainable Catskills is complete and ready for use! Sustainable Catskills can help teachers tackle difficult concepts like green energy, food miles and carbon footprints, sustainable agriculture and agrotourism. The use of in-class activities accompanied by place-based field trips help to make these concepts enjoyable for teachers to communicate with their students. The curriculum was written in conjunction with New York State learning standards, and will be easily applied to the lives of students growing up in the Catskill Mountain Region. Lessons are written for 4th-12 grade students with extensions for older students.
The Sustainable Catskills curriculum project was funded by the Catskill Watershed Corporation in partnership with New York City Department of Environmental Protection.
