Before Scheduling a Lesson

  • Note that EnviroChallengers can visit a school up to five times in one year.
  • Please communicate with other teachers in your school to book up to five lessons per day (with a maximum of two different lesson topics per day).
  • We recommend having one teacher coordinate all of your school’s lessons.
  • Note that each EnviroChallenger lesson is approximately 50-60 minutes.
  • Keep in mind block schedules, assemblies, in-service days, holidays and vacations when booking lessons.
  • When scheduling lessons, please allow for appropriate break times for EnviroChallenger educators, as well as time to travel between classrooms.
  • Confirmations will be emailed to the coordinating teacher the week before the lessons.
  • Remember to complete the required pre-visit activity for each lesson.
