Protect Your Climate Curriculum

Protect Your Climate Curriculum

The PYC curriculum includes 16 units of project-based learning activities about climate protection and reducing energy use for 4th and 5th grade elementary school teachers.

Working with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, SEI developed the curriculum in 2007 and supported 45+ teachers during the first two years of its implementation in the San Francisco Bay Area. The curriculum is composed of hands-on demonstrations, activities, discussions, experiments and take-home assignments that engage students in understanding and applying important climate change concepts. By integrating science, language arts and mathematics, the curriculum encourages logic, foresight, and critical thinking, empowering students to make informed decisions and protect the climate.
