EcoKits

EcoSuperior is delighted to promote environmental learning for students with our specially designed EcoKits

Each kit includes an easy to follow, week-long lesson-plan package (five 50-minute periods), to be facilitated by the classroom teacher or a member of EcoSuperior. Each kit comes complete with a teacher resource binder, student worksheet package, and all necessary supplies and materials to keep your students engaged. The EcoKits are intended to promote opportunities for hands-on environmental education in a classroom setting. For just $60, teachers can borrow an EcoKit for a 2-week period. For more information or to book an EcoKit, please call Erin at 807-624-2143 or email erin@ecosuperior.org
