Environmental Ed

Environmental Ed welcomes students to explore the world around them, and guides them as they learn about the food chain, plant and animal survival, bio-diversity, pollution, conservation, recycling, green energy and technology, environmental health, and so much more! The series of five-minute, fast-paced programs challenges students with facts, stories, investigations, questions, and Eco-quests to "leave no friend inside and carefully walk upon the earth." This video resource for elementary and middle grade students was produced by SCETV along with the State Department of Education's Environmental Education consultant Ed Fao.
