How Green Is Your School?  Investigate!

Getting your students involved in investigating your school to find ways to go green helps to build student engagement, involvement, awareness, knowledge and critical thinking and problem-solving skills in a relevant and real world context. 

Developed from the Project Learning Tree Green Schools! investigations and the Eco-Schools USA investigations, the Kansas Green Schools of Excellence investigations provide teachers, students, parents and community members with initial investigations to begin explorations in the following areas: 

  1. Energy
  2. Waste and Recycling
  3. Water
  4. Healthy School Environment
  5. The Learning Community

These investigations serve as a starting point for helping your school go green and can help schools to "Get Recognized" as a Kansas Green School of Excellence.
