NHEE is proud to roll out a new field trip funding program we're calling, "We NHEEd to Get Outside!"

Apply today to get your students outside on a field trip in 2018!

Tips for Real-World, Age-Appropriate Environmental Education

There are so many real-world issues we're coping with these days, and it's important to get kids involved in finding, designing and building solutions. However, whether your an educator, parent or caregiver, it can be hard to know where to start, or which projects are age appropriate so that kids are inspired rather than overwhelmed. This diagram, based largely off of research by David Sobel and others, was developed by Aubrey Nelson, former NHEE president, to help communicate which real-world projects might be cognitively appropriate for kids.

Climate Change Education in NH

As part of a larger EPA grant received from New England Environmental Education Alliance, each New England state was to determine what climate change education activities were occurring.   In New Hampshire, we developed a simple survey for collecting this information.  This was a non-random survey, it was disseminated through a variety of list serves and personal email lists of NHEE members.  The results are presented here.
