2020 Educational 4-H Kits

Middle School Curriculum

Dear Connecticut Middle School Educators:

We are a group of students at the University of Connecticut who are striving to make a greater impact on the environment by educating Connecticut’s youth to be more environmentally friendly.

This year a team has found a 4-H lesson plan to teach middle school students about their environment. For those who are interested, there are supplies for lesson 7 located at four, 4-H Extension offices throughout the state: Windham, Hartford, Litchfield, and New Haven. 

Connecticut Environmental Action Day’s goal is to continue these educational kits yearly. This year we are able to send the 4-H lesson plans to teachers in all 8 counties in Connecticut.  If you are a current UConn student we encourage you to get involved with Connecticut Environmental Action Day Educational Kits!

Please visit our Educational links page for educational links, videos, and more lesson plans for you to use with your online teaching.
